      A 47-year-old Wayne County man was killed in a motorcycle crash Sunday afternoon.

      James Lee Coleman, 47, and his wife, Lisa, were ejected from their motorcycle on I-75 near the 328 mile marker.

      The investigation is ongoing, but deputies believe the back tire of the motorcycle deflated, causing Coleman to lose control. Both people were then ejected.

      James Coleman died as a result of his injuries. Lisa, the passenger, was treated and released from McLaren Northern Michigan in Petoskey.

      Deputies say both people were wearing helmets.
