PLAINFIELD TWP., Mich. — A 25-year-old man from Sand Lake died from his injuries after witnesses say he drove into the path of a pickup truck late Saturday.
It happened at Rogue River Road NE near Woodwater Drive NE around 6:45 p.m.
Deputies say the driver of the motorcycle, Jonathon Harden, was driving eastbound on Rogue River Road NE when he drifted into the westbound lane of traffic and was struck by a pickup truck headed westbound.
The driver of the truck was not injured but his passenger suffered a minor hand injury.
Police say it does not appear alcohol or speed played a role and say Harden was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
Harden has just begun learning how to ride his motorcycle, a relative confirmed to FOX 17.
"He was with his friends and being very careful, he swung out in a curve too far and was hit head on by a truck," said Bonnie Jo Harden, Jonathon's mother.
"He was a fun kid who went 90 miles an hour through life because he wanted to experience everything."
