NEWBERRY — A downstate man died Friday after his snowmobile struck a tree on a trail near County Road 401 in Newberry.
Michael Makuch, 44, of Woodhaven, died after being transported by Luce County EMS to Helen Newberry Joy Hospital. Michigan State Police from the Newberry post were dispatched to the accident at 12:54 p.m.
Police said Makuch was riding southbound on the groomed trail on a 2004 Arctic Cat 600 snowmobile, when his machine ran off the right side of the trail on a sweeping curve and hit a large tree.
(If I find out more, I will post it. You know how rumors are and I will not speculate. The point is another life has been lost.)
