SPRINGFIELD, Mich. (WOOD) — Calhoun County sheriff’s deputies say a man was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash Saturday evening.
It happened at 6:35 p.m. on Dickman Road, east of Base Avenue.
Deputies say the motorcyclist, 34-year-old Richard Winner, was eastbound on Dickman Road when he missed the curve and went into the ditch.
Winner, a Battle Creek resident, suffered serious injuries to his head and lower body. He was taken to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo for treatment. Deputies say he was not wearing a helmet.
