U.P. man killed in motorcycle crash

IRON MOUNTAIN – A 21-year-old Bark River man was killed Saturday night in a motorcycle accident in Dickinson County.

Dickinson County Sheriff Scott Celello said Riley Klee was pronounced dead at the scene from injuries sustained in the accident, which occurred at 11:30 p.m. on M-69 near Quarry Road in Felch Township.

A male passenger was transported to Dickinson County Hospital for treatment, Celello said.

He said that an investigation determined that the motorcycle was westbound on M-69 when the driver lost control and struck a guardrail on the north side of the road.

After striking the guardrail, the motorcycle became airborne and both riders were ejected.

The driver and passenger were not wearing helmets, Celello said.
