Man hospitalized in motorcycle accident


STANDISH — A 57-year-old Prescott man was airlifted to St. Mary’s of Michigan Saginaw after a two-vehicle accident launched him from his motorcycle.

According to Arenac County Undersheriff Don McIntyre, the personal injury accident occurred July 4 at approximately 9:11 a.m.

McIntyre said the accident occurred on M-61 near the I-75 overpass when a 2002 Ford Escape traveling westbound on M-61 attempted to make a lefthand turn into the nearby Mobil gas station. The Escape turned in front of the eastbound motorcycle, which caused the motorcycle driver to be thrown from his bike.

The 28-year-old male driver of the Escape and his female passenger, each from Eastpointe, were uninjured in the accident.

The motorcycle driver was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

McIntyre said an Arenac County Sheriff’s Deputy reconstructionist was called in and the accident is still under investigation. Speed is believed to be a contributing factor.

The condition of the motorcycle driver is unknown at this time.
