LINCOLN TOWNSHIP, MI – The Midland County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a single vehicle motorcycle fatal traffic crash that claimed the life of a 67 year old Farwell man.
The crash took place on westbound US-10, just west of the M-30 off ramp in Lincoln Township at approximately 6:45pm on July 9, 2021. The investigation indicates that Rickie Bielicki of Farwell, was driving his maroon 2007 Harley Davidson FLHT Classic motorcycle westbound on US-10 when he suddenly veered to the right and drove off the highway just west of the M-30 exit ramp. Mr. Bielicki crashed and was ejected from the motorcycle.
Mr. Bielicki was pronounced deceased at the scene. It is suspected that Mr. Bielicki had a medical issue which caused him to leave the roadway and crash. Mr. Bielicki was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.
While there is no evidence to indicate that alcohol or drugs may have been a factor in this crash, we are waiting for toxicology reports for a final determination.
Midland County Sheriff’s Office personnel were assisted at the scene by the Michigan State Police and their 3rd District Accident Reconstruction Team, Lincoln & Jerome Township Fire Departments, and Mid-Michigan EMS.
