On June 13th at 6:18 a.m., officers of the Holland Department of Public Safety were dispatched to a single vehicle motorcycle accident near Waverly/M-40. The caller was an employee of a nearby business, who came to work and found the motorcycle and driver lying in the parking lot off Waverly. The time of the accident is unknown, but it is believed to have occurred sometime overnight.
Preliminary investigation indicates that a 2009 Honda CBR, being operated by a 26 year old Holland man, was headed south bound on Waverly. Evidence found at the scene indicates that, at the curve just prior to M-40, the motorcycle left the roadway and went airborne, struck a utility pole, and landed in the parking lot.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The name will not be released yet as relatives are still being notified.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or have any information regarding the accident or information leading up to the accident is urged to contact Sgt Dan Kender at (616) 355-1122. Persons also may email investigators at email@example.com.
