PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — A 17-year-old Ludington boy was flown via Aeromed to Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids with critical injuries following a single-vehicle crash Wednesday, Oct. 13, around 3:45 a.m. on South Lakeshore Drive north of Chauvez Road, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

“A preliminary report from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office Crash Team indicates speed and alcohol as potential factors in the crash. The crash does remain under investigation.”
