PARK TWP. — A Grand Junction man suffered critical injuries Friday afternoon when he laid down his motorcycle after avoiding a crash with a car.

Authorities responded shortly after noon to a report of a motorcyclist down in the roadway. Police said David Wadas, 55, was driving a 2013 Triumph motorcycle north on Lakeshore Drive in Park Township and was approaching the intersection of James Street when a vehicle turned left in front of him.

The female driver of the other vehicle said she stopped at the stop sign at James and didn’t see the motorcycle approaching and began to turn left, said Sgt. Matt Wildfong of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office. Wadas braked hard to avoid a collision and laid the vehicle down, Wildfong said.

Wadas was transported to Holland Hospital, where he was listed in critical condition on Friday, Wildfong said.

The two vehicles never came into contact with one another, therefore, the female driver was not injured. She was not identified.

Responding agencies included AMR Ambulance and Park Township Fire Rescue.
