Woman Ejected From Machine In ORV Accident

A woman in Mecosta County was not wearing her seat belt during an ORV accident, and she was ejected from her machine when she lost control of it and overturned. 

The Mecosta County Sheriff’s office says the accident happened in a driveway on 8 Mile Road, near 135th Avenue in Austin Township, shortly after midnight Saturday.

The 41-year-old woman from Stanwood suffered non-life threatening injuries, but the two female passengers in the O.R.V. were not ejected because they were wearing seat belts.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the accident.
