An unidentified South Lyon man, 44, suffered “severe trauma” from a motorcycle crash on the evening of Tuesday, June 14, 2011.
The accident occurred at about 6:40 p.m. when the man lost control of his 1999 Honda Shadow VT 750 as he tried to negotiate a curve in the 13000 block of Nine Mile Road, west of Dixboro Road in Green Oak Township.
The motorcyclist crossed into the oncoming lane and crashed into a guardrail on the opposite shoulder of the road and was thrown from the motorcycle.
Green Oak Township firefighters assisted the victim at the scene and Huron Valley EMS transported him to the University of Michigan Medical Center in Ann Arbor. The man was listed in critical condition as of 11:00 p.m. that evening.
Alcohol and speed are believed to be factors in the crash and police accident investigators continue to investigate. The victim was wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.
