On Thursday, Aug. 16, 2018, at approximately 7:21 p.m., deputies with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to the intersection of Grand River Avenue and Stow Road in Handy Township for a crash involving a motorcycle and Jeep Wrangler.

The preliminary investigation has revealed that a 40-year-old Sidney resident was operating a 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on Grand River Avenue when he rear ended a 2013 Jeep Wrangler pulling a trailer. The Jeep was operated by a 31-year-old Sidney resident who was stopping for traffic in front of her. The motorcycle operator suffered life threatening injuries and was transported to Sparrow Hospital by Livingston County EMS, while the operator of the Jeep was not injured. Grand River Avenue was closed for approximately three hours during the investigation.

The motorcycle operator was not wearing a helmet, while speed and alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash. The crash remains under investigation by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Safety Division.

Deputies were assisted at the scene by personnel from the Fowlerville Area Fire Department and Livingston County EMS.

  1. Another motorcycle accident in Livingston County, there were two riders killed in two accidents related to the recent annual Sturgis SD motorbike rally, maybe more injured. One of the victims came from Aurora, the Denver suburb on the east side. Before you ride, check the accident statistics on motorcycles compared to any other activity or occupation. Anyway, must make life exciting.

    • More times then not it’s not the motorcyclist fault it’s the cars, trucks ect that aren’t paying attention to there surroundings. An this couples friends and family I’m sure would appreciate it if you didnt refer to him as a statistic.

What do you think?
