Default Silver lake dunes death, anybody hear about it?

Cody J. Mong, 19, Oakland, died in an off-road vehicle accident Thursday in the Silver Lake Sand Dunes in Oceana County’s Golden Township.
The incident occurred at 5:20 p.m. Thursday .

The Oceana County sheriff’s deputies and Silver Lake Park rangers were dispatched to a serious injury accident on the Silver Lake State Park Dunes ORV area.

When they arrived they found that Cody J. Mong had been thrown from the quad he was operating and a second quad had jumped and landed on him. Cody suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

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

Departments involved were the Oceana Co. Sheriff’s Office, Michigan DNR and State Park rangers, Oceana EMS, Oceana Sheriff’s Victim Services Unit, and Aeromed.

Is silver lake as packed as it used to be? I didn't know if the economy did a number on the people who had rigs around here. I know quads are cheap, just curious if SL is packed every weekend like it was five years ago.
