A Solon Township man died Tuesday evening, June 28, after suffering a medical condition and crashing his motorcycle.

According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, Dale Gene Anderson, 63, of Solon Township, was traveling westbound on 18 Mile Road, near Simmons Avenue, about 9:30 p.m., June 28, with his wife, Elaine Rae Anderson, 63, as a passenger. She reported to police that the motorcycle began to slow down, and her husband became unresponsive and fell forward. She tried to gain control of the motorcycle, but it left the roadway, and they crashed into a ditch.

Passing motorists stopped to assist and performed CPR on Dale until Sheriff Deputies and Solon Fire and Rescue arrived and took over, but the rescue attempts were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Elaine was not injured.

Police said that the crash remains under investigation, and that alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in the crash.
