A Mid-Michigan teen is dead after authorities say he was hit while riding his bike.

It happened about 12:10 a.m. Sunday, Feb. 25 on Brady Road near Raucholz Road in Brady Township.

When deputies arrived, they found 17-year-old Tyghten Hnevsa with life-threatening injuries.

Investigators said Hnevsa, a junior at Chesaning Union Schools, was riding his bike eastbound on Brady Road with a 16-year-old girl who was on a separate bike.

An eastbound vehicle driven by a 72-year-old Chesaning man hit Hnvesa from behind.

The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.

Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in this crash, police said.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

Chesaning Union Schools released the following statement."Tyghten Hnevsa, a junior taking online courses at Chesaning Union High School, was well known for his big smile, big heart, and for being a jokester.

Tyghten will be dearly missed by his CHS family."Copyright 2018 WNEM (Meredith Corporation). All rights reserved.
