0 Comment

On October 14th, a moped rider was killed by a Minivan in Coldwater in Branch County. According to the Coldwater Police Department, the moped operator headed north on Michigan Avenue when he was allegedly struck by a Chevrolet Venture minivan attempting to turn onto US-12.

According to witnesses, the moped driver hit the windshield of the minivan and was thrown 30 feet from the moped. The moped rider suffered serious head injuries, internal injuries and broken legs as a result of the accident. He was flown to Borgess Medical Center in Kalamazoo where he died from his injuries.

I  am very sorry to hear that this tragic moped accident happened. My condolences go out to the family and friends of the moped rider.
