(MOTTVILLE TOWNSHIP) – Three members of a Three Rivers family were injured when their motorcycles collided.
The St. Joseph County Sheriff's Department says 58 year old Jeff Wagner and his wife, 50 year old wife Pauletta were riding their motorcycles west on U.S. 12 near Vistula Road in Mottville Township. Pauletta told deputies that her husband stopped to turn into Mottville Speedway, but she was not able to stop her motorcycle in time and rear ended her husband's vehicle.
Both of the Wagners along with their 11 year old son Brandon were taken to Three Rivers Health for treatment of minor injuries. Pauletta was given a citation for violation of the basic speed law because she could not stop within a clear assured distance.
Deputies were assisted at the scene by the White Pigeon Fire Department, Michigan State Police and Life Care Ambulance.
