The Mason County Sherriff's office is reporting that there is one person dead and one critically injured after a motorcycle accident Sunday night. Scott Butler (53) of Ludington died last night when a Ford Fusion pulled out in front of him and his wife on their 2002 Harley Davidson motorcycle on Scottville Road in Eden Township.
The fusion, driven by 19 year old Leigh Kozminski of Houston Texas, was attempting a right hand turn into the path of the northbound motorcycle at Hawley Road. Scott Butler and his wife were ejected from the cycle; neither were wearing helmets.
Mr. Butler was pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger of the motorcycle, Melanie, was flown by Aero Med to Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids and put into a medically induced coma. Melanie remains in critical condition.
