PORTAGE (WKZO) -- A motorcyclist involved in a Tuesday traffic collision in Portage has died.  Twenty-nine-year-old Patrick Joseph Sheppard of Kalamazoo was headed southbound in the 5300-block of South Westnedge when his motorcycle collided with a Chevrolet SUV that was turning west on Trade Centre Way around 3:11 p.m. Tuesday.

Sheppard succumbed to his injuries at Bronson Hospital Thursday morning.  The driver of the SUV suffered a minor injury 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.
