2 injured in motorcycle crash in South Ottawa Township

A two-motorcycle crash Saturday on Route 71 in South Ottawa Township led to hospital visits for both drivers.

At about 4:45 p.m. Saturday, Jesus Alvear, 52, Joliet, was traveling east on Route 71 near North 2725th Road in South Ottawa Township and failed to negotiate a curve, according to deputies. He left the roadway to the south and struck a concrete curb, deputies said.

Kevin Alvear, 26, was following behind and was unable to stop in time causing him to lay down his motorcycle.

Both drivers were taken to OSF St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa. No citations were issued.
