Brighton man dies in motorcycle crash.

GRANT TOWNSHIP — A 43-year-old Brighton, Michigan man died in a motorcycle crash on southbound US 31 near the Oceana Drive overpass Wednesday, Sept. 21, shortly before 7:30 p.m., according to Michigan State Police Sgt. Dan Thomas of the Hart post.

The man, whose name is presently not being released, was declared dead at the scene, said Thomas.

“He was traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to negotiate a curve.” The motorcyclist ran off the road and struck a guardrail. 

Speed was a factor in the crash, but alcohol and weather were not, he said. The man was wearing a helmet.

Troopers were assisted at the scene by the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office, Grant Township Fire Department, Life EMS and Neil’s Towing.
