Investigators say the 41-year-old motorcycle rider laid the bike down in an effort to avoid a crash, but hit the side of the auto.
The crash occurred at around 9:20 p.m. Authorities are looking for a black, newer-model SUV that is believed to have been involved in the wreck.
Officers on scene said a driver in a silver Dodge Journey was traveling west on 28th Street when she turned left into the pathway of a motorcyclist traveling eastbound.
The passenger, 41-year-old Carrie A. Friedhoff of North Chesterfield, died at the scene.
The driver of the SUV, a woman from Grand Rapids, was transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
