A 24-year-old man is dead after he was driving a motorcycle and collided with a vehicle in Lenox Township on Tuesday morning.

Larry Rybarz III, from Casco Township, was not wearing a helmet — which is not required by law in Michigan. The motorcycle was heavily damaged.

Macomb County Sheriff Sgt. Renee Yax said a call came just before 6 a.m. regarding a crash on County Line Road near Middle Lane of Americana Estates, a mobile home park. The area is a two-lane road.

The caller indicated that an unoccupied damaged vehicle, with airbags deployed, was on County Line Road.

When deputies arrived, they located the vehicle’s male driver, a 19-year-old New Baltimore resident, disoriented in the woods. He was taken to the hospital.

They also found a motorcycle and its deceased operator, also in the woods south of the vehicle.

Crews were still on the scene investigating Tuesday morning Yax said.
