A rollover accident occurs on Pere Marquette Highway.
MAY IS MOTORCYCLE AWARENESS MONTH. ALWAYS LOOK TWICE…YOU MIGHT SAVE A LIFE.
ACCORDING TO MICHIGAN’S SECRETARY OF STATE RUTH JOHNSON "EIGHTY PERCENT OF MOTORCYCLE CRASHES RESULT IN INJURY OR WORSE FOR THE MOTORCYCLIST," JOHNSON, WHO WAS ONE OF THE FIRST WOMEN IN OAKLAND COUNTY TO RECEIVE A MOTORCYCLE ENDORSEMENT, STATES; "THAT IS WHY SHARING THE ROAD SAFELY IS SO IMPORTANT. MOTORISTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO LOOK TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLES. MOTORCYCLISTS ARE URGED TO GET TRAINED, GET ENDORSED AND WEAR THE PROPER SAFETY GEAR."
LOOKING TWICE FOR MOTORCYCLISTS IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE MOTORCYCLE-VEHICLE CRASHES ARE MOST LIKELY TO HAPPEN AT INTERSECTIONS AND LEFT TURNS. ROAD CONDITIONS THAT DON'T BOTHER CARS AND TRUCKS CAN POSE REAL THREATS TO MOTORCYCLES, SO MOTORISTS ARE URGED TO GIVE MOTORCYCLISTS EXTRA SPACE.
AS THE POPULARITY OF MOTORCYCLING CONTINUES TO GROW, EVERYONE NEEDS TO TAKE THAT EXTRA SECOND TO LOOK TWICE AND SAVE A LIFE.

This morning the SS Badger set sail for its first voyage of the sailing season. WMOM reported live from the dockside of the Badger. MOM News spoke with Captain Jeffrey Curtiss, who's in his first year as a senior captain, before departure.
MOM News also spoke with Terri Brown, Marketing and Media Relations of the Lake Michigan Carferry, and she let passengers know what they can expect today... and the rest of the season, such as new food and entertainment.
Longtime residents of Ludington may have heard a familiar sound, this morning, when owner of Lazy J Ranch, Cliff Ulfers, sounded off the City of Midland's horn. The horn was on loan from LMC and whistled back and forth with the Badger as it sailed out of the harbor.
The ship will be back in Ludington around 7 tonight.
