Two hospitalized after motorcycle crash on M-14 near Ann Arbor
A woman was in critical condition and a man in good condition Monday after a motorcycle crash Sunday on westbound M-14 on the northwest side of Ann Arbor.
The crash occurred just after 4 p.m. Sunday, when a 70-year-old Bronson man lost control of the 2008 Victory motorcycle he was driving west on M-14 near Wagner Road in Scio Township, Michigan State Police said in a press release.
The man and his passenger, a 65-year-old Marshall resident, were both thrown from the motorcycle, police said, and landed in the roadway.
Police said both riders were wearing helmets, and alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the crash.
A preliminary investigation indicates the crash occurred as the driver was changing lanes. The driver crossed the fog line, went over the warning rumble strips and onto the gravel shoulder of the freeway before losing control of the bike, police said.
Huron Valley Ambulance paramedics took the injured to the University of Michigan Hospital. Scio Township firefighters also assisted at the crash scene.
