A 54-year-old Clinton Township man died Monday night in a crash with a Mercedes-Benz, police said.

The fatal crash took place about 9:40 p.m. Monday on southbound Harper. Authorities said the man died at the scene.

Police believe the victim was riding his bicycle in the northbound center turn lane on Harper when a black 2017 Mercedes headed south entered the turn lane, striking the victim.

Alcohol or drugs may have been a factor in the crash, according to a release from the Clinton Township Police Department. 

Police describe the area of the crash, on Harper between 15 Mile and Metro Parkway, as "poorly lit," with a northbound lane, a southbound lane, and a turn lane in the center. There are no sidewalks.

Police ask that anyone with information on the crash call Sgt. Christopher Allis at (586) 615-2525.
