Deputies still investigating car/motorcycle crash in Deerfield Township

A car-motorcycle crash at approximately 12:12 p.m. Monday, Nov. 9, at the intersection of N. Latson and Faussett roads in Deerfield Township sent a Fenton man to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Deputies from the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the scene. Their investigation reveals that a 2017 Ford Escape, driven northbound on N. Latson Road by a 77-year-old Howell woman, stopped at the stop sign on Faussett Road. She did not see the motorcycle westbound on Faussett Road and proceeded into the intersection, colliding with the motorcycle, a 2016 Polaris Indian Chief driven by a 65-year-old Fenton man.

The Fenton man, who was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, was transported by Livingston County Ambulance to Genesys Hospital in Grand Blanc for non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the Escape, who was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, complained of a possible injury, but refused medical treatment on scene.

The investigation is still ongoing, and the driver could face a civil citation for failed to yield. Speed and alcohol do not appear to a factor in the crash.

Deputies were assisted by the Hartland/Deerfield Fire Authority and the Livingston County Ambulance Service.
