Berrien County, Mich. A motorcyclist is dead after his brakes locked up and he lost control of the bike.
The crash happened just before 5:30 p.m. Thursday on E. Shawnee Rd., just west of Lauer Rd. in Oronoko Township, in Berrien County.
Authorities aren’t yet sure what caused the driver to have to lock up his brakes to either stop or slow down so quickly. One witness reports seeing a red mid-sized car in front of the motorcycle that did not stop but it is unclear if that contributed to the accident.
