Is it me or does there seem to be an unusually high number of motorcycle accidents lately? Regrettably we have another one to report. A three term Michigan lawmaker, Rep. Peter Pettalia was killed while riding on M-33 South in Montmorency County.
Josh Irwin is one lucky guy! The Bay City resident was going approximately 40 miles an hour on a motorcycle when a deer ran out in front of him. Irwin did hit the deer and walked away with a broken arm (could have been much worse). Surprisingly enough the deer was okay too. You can see it all, because Josh captured the incident on his GoPro!
Last Tuesday, police arrested a 33 year-old Lapeer man and expect to charge him with reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, and possibly drunk driving, after he took police on a high speed chase from Attica Township to Lapeer at speeds of 120 mph on his motorcycle.
