A Caro man was hospitalized Sunday, June 7 after a crash in Tuscola County’s Ellington Township.

Police say the 55-year-old was riding a moped on Deckerville Rd. near Murray when he made a left turn into the path of a passing Ford F-150 driven by a 17-yea- old Deford girl. The girl told police the moped driver was traveling slowly when she attempted to pass and never used his turn signal.

The man was not wearing a helmet and was thrown from the moped, suffering life-threatening injuries. The girl was uninjured.

Police suspect the man was driving under the influence but do not suspect the girl was.
