A motorcycle driver was seriously hurt in a July 4 collision with an SUV outside Grand Beach.

Christopher Beller, 46, underwent surgery for a broken vertabrae in his back, according to the Berrien County Sheriff's Department.

Police said surgical procedures were also performed on his broken right leg and shattered knee cap.

The Warsaw, Indiana man was eastbound on U.S 12 on a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle before 2 p.m. when the SUV pulled out from a parking lot into his path near Grand Ave., police said.

The SUV was operated by Vytautas Grebliauskas, 65, of Oak Lawn, Illinois.

Grebliauskas said he didn't see the oncoming motorcycle, according to police.

Police said findings of the investigation were presented to prosecutors for possible filing of a moving violation causing serious injury charge.

Under Michigan law, the crime is a misdemeanor punishable by no more than 93 days imprisonment and an up to $500 fine.
