MARQUETTE — At 11:16 a.m. Wednesday morning, Troopers from the Michigan State Police Negaunee Post were dispatched to County Road 550 just north of County Road KN for a two vehicle traffic crash involving a motorcycle.

Upon investigation, Troopers determined that a 21 year old male from Cadott, Wisconsin was traveling North on County Road 550 on a Suzuki motorcycle. He was driving directly behind a Honda Odyssey driven by a 16 year old female from Champion.

The Honda Odyssey slowed down and attempted to make a left hand turn. The motorcycle was unable to stop, and drove into the rear of the Honda Odyssey.

The driver of the motorcycle was transported from the scene to UPHS-Marquette and remains in critical condition. The driver and passenger in the Honda Odyssey were both uninjured in the crash.
