A motorcyclist died Tuesday night after an accident with another biker on Detroit’s east side, police said.

The two were on Gratiot near Mount Elliott about 9 p.m. “and sideswiped each other,” said Sgt. Cassandra Lewis, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department. “One of the bikes lost control.”

That driver hit a lamp post and was pronounced dead; the other left the scene, Lewis said.

A full description of that person wasn’t immediately available, she said.

Anyone with information is asked to call the DPD homicide unit at (313) 596-2240.
