Sheriff Daniel E. Abbott reports on the date of 09/02/2018 Van Buren County Deputies responded to the scene of a single vehicle motorcycle crash with injuries. The initial investigation found that the cycle was being ridden by a 68-year-old male driver and 51-year-old female passenger. The driver lost control of the cycle in a curve causing it to run off the roadway and eject both riders. Both riders sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to the hospital. The driver was not wearing a helmet, but the passenger was. It is believed that alcohol was a factor in the crash based on the initial investigation. Once the investigation is complete the report will be forwarded to the prosecutor for review.
