TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 61-year-old man who collided with a pedestrian and crashed his bicycle while riding in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula has died.

Grand Traverse County sheriff’s Lt. Chris Barsheff says Kenneth Paul Krych of Traverse City wasn’t wearing a helmet as he pedaled his bicycle north along U.S. highway 31 on Sunday. Krych says the bicyclist struck the woman, who was walking along the road’s shoulder.

WPBN-TV reports the crash happened around 10 p.m.

Barsheff says the man suffered serious injuries to his head and face. The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports he died on Monday.

Barsheff says the woman had minor injuries that didn’t require hospitalization.
