HOLLAND, Mich. — Holland Police is investigating a motorcycle crash that left one man dead.

Around 6 a.m., officers of the Holland Department of Public Safety were dispatched to a single vehicle motorcycle accident near Waverly Rd and M-40.

The caller came to work and found the motorcycle and driver lying in the parking lot off Waverly Rd.

The time of the accident is unknown, but it is believed to have occurred sometime overnight.

Preliminary investigation indicates that a 2009 Honda CBR, being operated by a 26-year-old Holland man, was headed southbound on Waverly Rd.

Evidence found at the scene indicates that, at the curve just prior to M-40, the motorcycle left the roadway and went airborne, struck a utility pole, and landed in the parking lot.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The name will not be released yet as relatives are still being notified.
