Oxford Township — One man is dead after his motorcycle was struck by one of two vehicles involved in a crash Monday afternoon.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department reports the incident occurred at about 3:30 p.m. in the area of Drahner Road and Buckley Avenue.

According to crash reconstruction specialists, a 2007 Honda Odyssey failed to yield when it turned in front of an eastbound 2008 Dodge Ram pickup. The truck then lost control and struck a 2011 Victory motorcycle, which was traveling westbound.

The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Police haven’t released the victim’s name but said the 48-year-old Oxford Township resident was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
