Devon Warne was riding his bicycle south on 112th Avenue about 10:53 p.m. Monday when he was struck from behind and ejected from his bicycle, said Sgt. Steve Austin of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department. Warne died at the scene.

Police said the driver of the car, also southbound on 112th Avenue, was blinded by an oncoming vehicle’s headlights and did not see the bicyclist before striking him.

The 27-year-old Zeeland woman driving the car was not injured.

The incident is still under investigation, Austin said.
