Crash between Car and Motorcycle Near Sunshine and Grant Kills One

One person is dead, and another person is in custody following a crash involving a motorcycle in Springfield.

Investigators say a woman driving an SUV pulled out of a driveway onto Sunshine and hit the motorcycle that was driving eastbound Thursday morning.

The man driving the motorcycle was thrown from the bike, sustaining severe injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman driving the SUV didn’t stop, and continued driving eastbound before hitting a utility pole.

When officers arrived, they attempt to arrest the woman, who resisted arrest before finally being detained.

Traffic was backed up for several hours this morning with authorities investigated, and has recently been reopened.

The identity of the victim and the suspect have not been released to the public at this time.
