ELKHART, Ind. - A Michigan man has died from injuries he received while riding his motorcycle through Elkhart County.

George Bommarito, 49, was airlifted to a hospital Saturday afternoon from the accident scene just east of Nappanee.

Bommarito had been riding behind an SUV driving east on Highway 6, west of CR 11.

Officers say the SUV began to turn right, and Bommarito began to pass the SUV on the left.

That is when the SUV abruptly tried to turn left instead, and the two vehicles collided.

Bommarito was pronounced dead on Sunday, after suffering severe head trauma.

The crash remains under investigation.
