PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — The Mason County Sheriff’s Office has released more details on the car/motorcycle crash that occurred Monday afternoon on US 10 near the Nelson Road intersection.
According to Sheriff Kim Cole, the crash occurred at 2:05 p.m. when Carol Ann Wilson, 77, of Mears was operating a 2009 BMW 328xi westbound on US 10 and attempted a left turn into driveway of the plaza located at 5773 W. US 10. In doing so she turned into the path of an eastbound 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by Pierre Andre Marcoux, 65, of Ludington.
Marcoux, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected off the motorcycle and onto the pavement. He sustained serious head injuries as a result and was transported by ambulance to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital and then flown to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, by AeroMed helicopter, for further treatment, Cole said. Wilson received minor injuries.
Neither alcohol, drugs nor speed appear to have played a role in the crash, Cole said.
Responding to the scene were Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Ludington Police Department, Pere Marquette Township Fire Department, Ludington Fire Department, and Life EMS.
The crash remains under investigation.
