A Newaygo man was sent to the hospital on Monday afternoon, August 29, after the motorcycle he was driving was hit from behind.

The crash occurred on 17 Mile, just east of Pine Island. According to Deputy Lecuru, a SUV rear-ended the motorcycle. Both vehicles appeared to be eastbound.

The driver of the motorcycle, a 28-year-old Newaygo man, was not wearing a helmet. Deputy Fire Chief Chris Paige, with Solon Township Fire and Rescue, said that the man was alert and talking, and showed no obvious signs of severe trauma. He was transported to the hospital by Rockford ambulance with non-life-threatening injuries—mainly bumps and bruises.

The driver of the SUV, a 54-year-old woman from Casnovia, was not injured in the crash.

Deputy Lecuru said that alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash. The crash is still under investigation.

    Thank you for the info. The info we get is from law enforcement and the first responders. And usually, we are told that injuries are either life-threatening or non-life-threatening, not much more because of HIPPA laws (patient confidentiality). Injuries can be severe but not life-threatening. Sometimes more injuries are found once patients get to the ER, but we often aren’t told after the fact unless patients tell us because of HIPPA laws (patient confidentiality). We only report what we are told. Thank you for updating us.
