Farwell Man Critically Injured in Motorcycle Crash with Semi

A Clare County man is being treated in a Saginaw hospital for injuries suffered in a crash in Isabella County last Thursday.

Police say the 26-year-old Farwell man was riding a 2015 Yamaha motorcycle on Coleman Road near the intersection of Fordyce Road in Gilmore Township around 9:45 A.M. when he crashed into a semi truck, driven by a 64-year-old Vestaburg man. Police say the rider was traveling at a high rate of speed and was unable to slow down after coming over a hill, where the 2007 Freightliner pulled into his path. Police say the man skidded directly into the truck.

The victim was arilifted to Ascension St. Mary’s Hospital in Saginaw with life threatening injuries. His condition is currently unknown.
