PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Two motorists were injured in a traffic crash in Portage Tuesday afternoon.

Portage Public Safety responded to the report of a collision between a motorcycle and an SUV in the 5300-block of South Westnedge around 3:11 p.m.  Apparently, a motorcycle headed southbound struck a Chevrolet SUV that was turning west onto Trade Centre Way.

A 29-year-old Kalamazoo man was thrown from the motorcycle suffering serious injuries and he was taken to Bronson Hospital.  The driver of the SUV suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene.

Alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the crash, though speed might have been, and the incident remains under investigation.
