Beaver Island Roll Over Has Driver In Hospital

Posted: Updated:

Driver airlifted to hospital after hitting tree and rolling car over. 

On Saturday, August 24, Robert Kuehne of Okemos was driving southbound along East Side Drive on Beaver Island.  

He reported that he fell asleep at the wheel of a 1995 GMC Yukon and failed to turn with a curve in the road. 

His car hit an electrical pole and continued into the woods where it struck a large tree causing the car to roll over. 

Kuehne received a head injury and was flown off Beaver Island to the Charlevoix Area Hospital.

Charlevoix County Sheriffs say alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

Kuehne was wearing a seatbelt.
