Motorcyclist On Way To Funeral Of Another Motorcyclist Crashes Into A Building!
A man on his way to a funeral lost control of his motorcycle, causing him to crash through a closed bar building. The incident occurred shortly after 2 p.m. Saturday on Allen Road, near Southfield Road. Contrary to at least one media report, Detective Jim Thorburn said the motorcyclist was not cut off by another vehicle. “It appears there was some type of mechanical failure, motorcycle-wise,” Thorburn said. “That’s what our initial investigation tells us.” The victim, who is his 50s, was riding with a group of five other motorcyclists and were heading to Voran Funeral Home, 5900 Allen Road, which is across the street from where the crash occurred. “They were going to escort a funeral,” Thorburn said. “Another motorcyclist had passed away.” Source
