Mears woman charged in connection to May crash.

LUDINGTON — A 77-year-old Mears woman faces a misdemeanor of “moving violation causing serious impairment” stemming from a crash last May in which a Ludington motorcyclist was seriously injured.

Carol Ann Wilson, of 5215 W. Fox Rd., was arraigned Monday, Sept. 24, in 79th District Court, according to court records.

The car/motorcycle crash occurred May 14, 2018 on US 10 near the Nelson Road intersection in Pere Marquette Township.

Wilson was driving a 2009 BMW westbound on US 10. As she attempted to turn left into a plaza driveway, she turned into the path of an eastbound 2004 Harley Davidson motorcycle, driven by 65-year-old Pierre Andre Marcoux, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

Marcoux, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected off the motorcycle and onto the pavement. He sustained serious head injuries and was transported by ambulance to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital and then flown to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, by an AeroMed helicopter, for further treatment, Cole said. Wilson received minor injuries.

Neither alcohol, drugs nor speed appeared to have played a role in the crash, Cole said.

Wilson’s bail was set at $3,500/personal recognizance, and she has permission from the court to leave the state to travel to Arizona.
