According to the Kent County Sheriff Department, the crash occurred about 4:43 p.m. Tuesday, August 11, on Pine Island Drive, at Indian Lakes Road.

He struck the rear of her vehicle and was thrown from his motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet, and suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the accident. He was transported by Rockford Ambulance to Spectrum Downtown Hospital.

Police said that alcohol may have been a contributing factor in the accident, which remains under investigation.
