LONDON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A Monroe County man died this weekend when his motorcycle crashed while he was returning from a memorial for a fellow rider who was killed in an accident.

Michigan State Police say 45-year-old Douglas A. Cunningham of Carleton died Wednesday night in Monroe County's London Township.

Trooper Stephen Borello tells the Monroe Evening News that Cunningham missed a curve and his motorcycle crashed into a ditch, throwing the victim about 12 to 15 feet. The trooper says he believes Cunningham died instantly.

Borello says Cunningham was returning from a memorial for fellow biker Ronald (RG) George, who was killed in a motorcycle accident Monday, April 7.
