Scottville man dies in motorcycle crash.

FILER TOWNSHIP, (Manistee County) — A 34-year-old Scottville man was killed in a motorcycle crash Tuesday, Oct. 5, shortly before 11:30 p.m. at the intersection of Nelson Street and Stronach Road, according to Manistee County Sheriff Brian Gutowksi.

Jason Quick was pronounced dead at the scene, said Sheriff Gutowski. 

“The caller advised Manistee County Central Dispatch that they observed a motorcycle traveling south on Nelson Street that disregarded the stop sign at Stronach Road,” said the sheriff. “The driver of the motorcycle traveled through the T intersection, hit the curb, and crashed into a trailer which was parked in a business parking lot. 

“The first deputy arrived on scene within three minutes and found the driver unresponsive. Deputies and EMS personnel attempted life-saving measures which were unfortunately unsuccessful. The driver of the motorcycle, identified to be 34-year-old Jason Quick of Scottville, was pronounced deceased on scene. 

“The preliminary investigation indicates that alcohol and speed were both factors in the crash.”

The Manistee County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the City of Manistee Fire/EMS, Filer Township Fire/EMS, MMR (Mobile Medical Response) EMS, City of Manistee Police Department, and Manistee County Central Dispatch. 

The investigation is ongoing.
