Authorities: Pilot dies in small plane crash in Michigan


The Midland County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fatal crash that killed a 60-year-old Freeland woman.

Vickie Berry was riding her motorcycle on N. Meridian Road just north of M-20 on Sept. 24 when she was struck by a vehicle, the sheriff's office said.

Berry was transported to Midland Michigan Medical Center for treatment. She was pronounced dead on Oct. 9.

The vehicle that struck her was driven by an 18-year-old from Midland, the sheriff's office said.

The 18-year-old was in the Shell gas station parking lot when she pulled out into the roadway striking Berry, the sheriff's office said.

Investigators said the driver did not see the motorcyclist.

The driver had three passengers in her vehicle and none of them were injured.

The incident remains under investigation.
