Police reported Russell Roy Rose, 66, was in critical condition following the 2:12 a.m. crash.

Rose’s 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle left the road and crashed into the median on I-96 near the 8-mile marker, said Sgt. Greg Rotman of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department.

An ambulance transported him to Spectrum Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids where he remained in critical condition as of 9:30 this morning.

Rose was wearing a helmet and alcohol does not appear to be a factor, Rotman said.

The crash is still under investigation.
