Motorcyclist from Howell killed in two-vehicle crash

At approximately 6:16 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the intersection of White Lake Road and Runyan Lake Road for a two-vehicle fatal crash.

The preliminary investigation shows that a 20-year-old Huntington Woods resident was operating a 2019 Dodge Charger northbound on Runyan Lake Road when she failed to yield the right of way to a 52-year-old Howell resident operating a 2019 Harley Davidson motorcycle and traveling westbound on White Lake Road. The Howell resident was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced deceased at the scene while the Huntington Woods resident and her passengers were uninjured.

Alcohol use and speed are still under investigation; however the Howell resident was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. The intersection remained closed for approximately three hours while the crash was investigated.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by personnel from the Fenton City Fire Department and Livingston County EMS.

This crash remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Major Crash Team.
