“A Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by a 34-year-old man from Ionia struck the two motorcycles from behind,” ICSO officials said, “The motorcycles had been slowing on the roadway preparing to turn into a private driveway.”

The first motorcycle that was struck was driven by a 36-year-old man from Saginaw, the second was driven by a 52-year-old man from Saginaw. There was a passenger on the second motorcycle, a 53-year-old woman from Orleans Township.

Both men from Saginaw suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The passenger was severely injured, and was flown by Areo-Med to Sparrow in Lansing for treatment, where she died as a result of her injuries.

Helmets were worn by the drivers and the passenger on the motorcycles. Police say they believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
