LENOX TWP. (WWJ) – A 24-year-old motorcyclist has been killed in an early morning crash in Lenox Township.

Deputies with the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office responded to a 911 call, shortly before 6 a.m. Tuesday, about an accident on County Line Rd., near Middle Lane of Americana Estates.

At the scene they found a damaged vehicle with the airbags deployed, and a 19-year-old New Baltimore man — who investigators say was the driver — just beyond the west shoulder in the woods.

He was disoriented and was transported a local hospital for treatment, officials said. It’s unclear at this time how badly he was hurt.

Nearby, deputies found a heavily damaged motorcycle and its driver, a 24-year-old Casco Township man, dead on the scene. It is believed that he was not wearing a helmet, according to the sheriff’s office.

It’s unclear who was at fault as the cause of the crash remains under investigation.

No names were released.
