LUDINGTON — A 61-year-old Lennon, Mich. woman was recently sentenced in 79th District Court to pay $615 in fines and costs in connection to the July 14, 2017 deaths of motorcyclists Ken and Mary Ann Geurink of Branch Township. The couple died following the crash in the 5200 block of US 10, in front of Burger King.

Sonya Sebok was initially charged with two counts of moving violation causing death, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail. One of the two counts was dismissed when Sebok pleaded “no contest,” Nov. 6, according to her court file.

The crash occurred at approximately 8:30 p.m. when Sebok, driving a Ford Explorer, apparently pulled out of the Burger King driveway into the path of an eastbound Chevrolet Cruz driven by a 20-year-old Bitely woman. The two vehicles struck a motorcycle driven by Ken Geurink, 70, and his wife, Mary Ann, 71, who was a passenger on the motorcycle.

Ken Geurink was pronounced dead on the scene. Mary Geurink was transported by ambulance to Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital and then flown by Aeromed helicopter to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, where she later died from her injuries.

Sebok’s conviction is reportable to the Secretary of State.
