Authorities are investigating after a man and woman were killed in a crash Friday morning.

It happened about 12:48 a.m. on N. Saginaw Street near Damon Street on Flint's north side.

Investigators said a white Chevy sedan was driving westbound on Damon Street when the vehicle made a left turn onto southbound N. Saginaw Street. A motorcycle then struck the sedan, police said.

The rider and passenger, a man and woman, were thrown from the bike. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the sedan was taken to Hurley Medical Center and interview by police.

The names of those involved have not been released.

Investigators believe speed was a factor in the crash.

Flint Police said there was one other motorcycle involved in the crash. That rider did not hit the vehicle, but did fall off the bike and is listed in good condition at the hospital.

"Look at this, there's nothing. His whole bike disintegrated, it just caught on fire and burned right there," said Rob Wills.

Wills said he lived next door to the victim who owned the bike, even riding with him on occasion.

He admits that this morning, they had planned to go out together.

"I was supposed to be out there, that's why I'm so messed up," Wills said. "Because I feel like I could've been out here too."

All that remains of the crash are scattered pieces of the bike, which Willis said he's going to collect, in honor of his friend.

Wills is asking drivers to be mindful of bikers like himself and his friend, who he regrets never getting to ride with again.

"You just got to be careful man, you never know what's coming around the corner and this is a classic example," Wills said. "This is making me want to put me bike up."
