Douglas Brown, 53, of Mt. Pleasant died July 20 after he lost control of his motorcycle and ran off the road in Sheridan Township.
Deputies from the Clare County Sheriff’s Department were called to the scene on Bailey Lake Avenue near Adams Road around 6:40 p.m. Troopers from the Michigan State Police were also on the scene.
Brown, who was reportedly north bound on Bailey Lake Avenue, was reportedly not wearing a helmet at the time and police do not know if alcohol was a factor in the accident.
