ALLENDALE TWP. — A 19-year-old Northville man suffered non-life-threatening injuries when he walked in front of a motorcycle late Saturday night, said Ottawa County Sheriff’s Sgt. Matt Wildfong.

Aiden Dewitt suffered a leg injury in the crash that occurred at about 11:37 p.m. at the intersection of 48th Avenue and Lake Michigan Drive in Allendale Township.

Alcohol was a factor in the incident, Wildfong said.

The motorcyclist — Joseph Patrick, 58, of Grand Rapids — was driving south on 48th Avenue when Dewitt walked into his path, the sergeant said. Patrick was not injured.
