A Gowen man was injured Monday when he dumped his motorcycle while traveling on the curve on 18 Mile, just south of Fieldstone Meadows.
According to Kent County Sheriff Deputy Scott Abbatoy, the 58-year-old man was traveling toward Cedar Springs, on 18 Mile, when his foot got stuck under the brake, and he tipped the bike. He was not wearing a helmet, and suffered a head injury, as well as lacerations on his hands. He was sent to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
A man and woman who were out doing home inspections stopped at the scene when they saw the victim on his hands and knees, with his head bleeding. They let him sit in their vehicle to wait for police and the ambulance. “If you see someone like that, you can’t just drive by,” said the woman. “If it was my dad, I’d want to someone to stop.”
Cedar Springs Fire and Rescue and Rockford Ambulance assisted at the scene.
