Bicyclist dies following US 10/31 crash.

AMBER TOWNSHIP — A male bicyclist died Tuesday afternoon following a crash with a vehicle in the 2700 block of US 10/31 between Dennis and Stiles roads.

Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole said witnesses reported an adult male was riding a bicycle eastbound on the eastbound paved shoulder of US 10-31. “The bicyclist, for an unknown reason, suddenly veered off the shoulder, to the left, and into the path of an eastbound passenger vehicle, which was traveling in the right lane,” Cole said.

The vehicle that struck the bicyclist was a 2002 Jeep Liberty driven by a 21-year-old Manistee woman. The bicyclist was a 37-year-old Saginaw man.

The bicyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Jeep was uninjured.

Cole said the name of the deceased and details of the other driver are being withheld until family can be notified.

Emergency personnel responding to the scene included Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Scottville Fire Department, Pere Marquette Township Fire Department, Ludington Fire Department, and Life EMS. The case remains under investigation.
