A 25-year-old Brighton man riding a motorcycle who was airlifted to University of Michigan Hospital Friday evening has died after suffering critical injuries in a crash, according to a report from Livingston County's WHMI radio station.
The station reports that Scott Pohl was the driver of the motorcycle that collided with an SUV on North Territorial Road east of South Weed Road in Salem Township.
The Michigan State Police were dispatched around 6:30 p.m. Friday to the crash. A 2004 Ford Explorer, driven by an 18-year-old Northville woman, was attempting to make a left turn from Territorial onto a private driveway when it crashed with a 2007 Honda motorcycle, which was oncoming, police said.
Speeds are unknown at this time, and alcohol does not appear to be a factor. The driver of the motorcycle was not wearing a helmet, according to a news release.
The driver of the motorcycle was flown via Survival Flight to U-M Hospital.
Family has been notified of the crash. The two occupants in the Explorer were not injured. The crash investigation continues.
