Three people were injured last Sunday in a crash involving two motorcycles and a pick-up in Lake.

Clare Sheriff’s Department deputies received the call at 7:15 p.m. of the personal injury accident in Garfield Township.

When they arrived they found that a pickup driven by Ethan Christensen, 21, of Greenville had pulled out of the parking lot of Scott’s Party Store and Sports Shop into the path of two west-bound motorcycles on Ludington Drive. The first motorcycle, driven by James King, 51, of Kentwood collided with the side of Christensen’s vehicle. Aaron King, 19, of Kentwood, who was driving a second motorcycle, had to lay his motorcycle down in the roadway to avoid colliding with the pickup.

James King received leg injuries in the crash and Aaron King sustained minor injuries. Christensen also received minor injuries in the accident. All three were taken to ambulance to MidMichigan Medical Center – Clare for treatment.

Both of the Kings were wearing helmets at the time of the crash, which is still under investigation.

Clare deputies were assisted at the scene by the Garfield Township Fire Department, Mobile Medical Response Ambulance Service and the Clare County Road Commission.
