Fatal Schoolcraft County ATV Crash

A Schoolcraft County man is dead after a weekend ATV accident.

State Police from the Manistique Post say it happened shortly before 4:30 Saturday afternoon on the Manistique River Road in Doyle Township.

49-year-old Lindsley Frenette of Gulliver lost control of his machine during an annual ride with friends.

Police say he ran off the road and hit a tree.

When troopers got to the scene, ambulance personnel told them that Frenette was already dead.

Alcohol use and excessive speed are both believed to be factors in the crash.
