COMMERCE TOWNSHIP (WWJ) – A one person was killed and another was hurt, according to authorities, in an early morning motorcycle accident in Oakland County.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office says a man and woman were on a 2000 Honda when the driver lost control on a curve in the road, near Oakley Park and Sutton Lane in Commerce Township, and crashed.

The man, identified as a 26-year-old Highland Township resident, died at Beaumont-Botsford Hospital, officials said. The woman, a 24-year-old Commerce Township resident, was airlifted from the scene. She remains hospitalized in serious condition.

Deputies said the man, who was driving the bike, was not wearing a helmet.

Alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been a factor, but speed likely contributed, according to investigators,

No names have been released.
