IMLAY CITY, Mich. – A woman was pronounced dead after her motorcycle crashed into a truck in Imlay City, according to police.

A black F-150 truck was turning left from Kroger onto southbound Cedar Street. The driver of the truck said she did not see the motorcycles heading northbound in the left lane.

The three-wheeled motorcycle struck the driver’s side cab and box side of the truck. The woman driving the motorcycle was wearing a helmet. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man on the other motorcycle was transported to a hospital to be treated for a broken leg and ribs. The driver of the truck was transported to a hospital for possible injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
