LUDINGTON — A 60-year-old Lennon, Mich. woman has been formally charged in connection to the July 14, 2017 deaths of motorcyclists Ken and Mary Ann Geurink of Branch Township. The couple died following a vehicle crash in the 5200 block of US 10, in front of Burger King.

Sebok has been charged in Mason County’s 79th District Court with two counts moving violation causing death, a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment for not more than one year and/or a fine of up to $2,000.00.

The crash occurred about 8:30 p.m. when Sonya 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. During the collision, the two vehicles struck a motorcycle driven by Ken Geurink, 70; his wife, Mary Ann, 71, 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 as a result of her injuries. 

Responding to the scene were Michigan State Police, Mason County Sheriff’s Office, Scottville Police Department, Pere Marquette Township Fire Department, Ludington Fire Department, and Life EMS.

Sebok is scheduled for a pre-trial conference in district court on July 16, 2018.
