The Midland County Sheriff’s Office is investing a two vehicle crash that claimed the life of a 59 year old Larkin Township man (Steven Brabaw). The crash occurred on August 17th at approximately 11:36 am on Saginaw Road near Hope Road in Lincoln Township.

At this point in the investigation it appears the 59 year victim was traveling eastbound on Saginaw Road on a 2015 Yamaha motorcycle when an 83 year old Gladwin female (Marcia Garcia), driving a 2015 Ford Fusion, headed west on Saginaw Road turned left into the Averill Rollway Trailhead Park. 

At this point the vehicle and motorcycle collided. Mr. Brabaw was pronounced deceased shortly after.

The Midland County Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by Mid-Michigan Medical Center EMS and Lincoln Township Fire and Rescue. This crash remains under investigation pending lab results for the presence of drugs and or alcohol. A report will be sent to the Prosecutors Office for review.

Thank you,

Sheriff Scott Stephenson
