      A downstate man is dead and another seriously hurt after a crash at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Oceana County.

      The Oceana Co. Sheriff's Office and Silver Lake Park Rangers were called to the crash Thursday around 5:30pm at the dunes in Golden Township.

      Rescue crews say Cody Mong, 19, of Oakland County was thrown from the quad he was driving and a second quad jumped and landed on him. Mong was pronounced dead at the scene.

      The driver of the second quad was flown to Spectrum Hospital in Grand Rapids for non-life threatening injuries. The incident is still under investigation by the Oceana County Sheriff's Office.
