KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- An unfortunate chain of events has left two Kalamazoo area men dead and two families in mourning.
Kalamazoo County Deputies say 55-year-old Theo “Buzz” Metzger was killed when his motorcycle struck a deer early Tuesday in the 6300-block of Douglas Avenue, in Cooper Township.
When 78-year-old Edmund Janke of Otsego came across the unlit crash scene a few minutes later, he reportedly struck Metzger’s body lying in the road, went out of control rolled the vehicle and crashed.
He was killed when he was ejected from his vehicle and hit the ground hard.
Tests are being conducted but it doesn’t appear speed or alcohol were factors in the crashes, just a lot of bad luck.
