A Wednesday night motorcycle accident involving a collision with a deer has left two people hospitalized.
According to the initial report by Michigan State Police, 54-year-old Daniel Gundlach was riding his motorcycle north on Maple Valley Road when a deer darted from the side of the road into his bike.
Mr. Gundlach was carrying a passenger at the time, Kathryn Sutherland, and both riders were knocked from the bike and on to the roadway. Both riders sustained unspecified injuries and were transported by ambulance to Marlette Regional Hospital.
Authorities were not confirming the presence of alcohol, but they do believe it may have been a factor in this accident.
Officials also say that both riders limited their injuries due to the fact that they were wearing helmets at the time of the collision.
At the time of this report, no update was available on the rider’s status.
Seeing a copy of the Michigan accident report is extremely important. Reports are critical to professional investigations and also serve to create peace of mind for the victims and their families. Without an official report, you’ll likely be unaware of several key facts that help to explain how the accident happened, and you’ll also be unable to dispute any inaccuracies the accident report may contain.
3 Facts to remember about Michigan Accident reports:
If you file an insurance claim or lawsuit, this document will be the first piece of evidence that everyone wants to see.
An Michigan accident report’s main purpose is to tell what happened: how, where, when, and to whom.
The “how” of an accident report is the officer’s best after-the-fact interpretation of the crash. Sometimes it’s possible to amend disputed facts in a report.
