SENEY, MI--   A downstate couple has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Seney.

Troopers from the St. Ignace Post were called Sunday around 2:30 p.m. to M-28 near M-77. A motorcycle driven by Robert Wydeck, 63, of Grand Haven was westbound on M-28 when he suffered some kind of medical event, lost control, and ran off the northern shoulder of the road. Both he and his 63-year-old wife Kathleen were thrown from the motorcycle as it collided with a road sign.

Robert Wydeck—who was as not wearing a helmet—was airlifted to UPHS Marquette. His wife—who was wearing a helmet—was taken to Helen Newberry Joy Hospital. Both suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Neither speed nor alcohol were factors in the crash.
