Motorcyclist Seriously Injured in Wilcox Twp. Crash
According to MSP, a preliminary investigation shows that a 2009 Toyota Rav4 driven by a 47-year-old Scottville woman was driving westbound on 1 Mile Road (M-20) near Sycamore Avenue when the vehicle crossed the center line and struck an eastbound motorcycle operated by the Rothbury man.
The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet but suffered serious injuries that required him to be transported to a hospital via Aero Med. The driver of the Toyota was not injured.
Alcohol or drug use does not appear to be a factor, but distracted driving does appear to be a factor. The crash remains under investigation.
