Wisconsin man who hit “Muskegon Motorcycle Gang” gets eight years in prison

In a Wisconsin court room on Thursday, February 6, 27-year-old Wisconsin resident Clinton Lovelace was sentenced to eight years of imprisonment for hitting a group of motorcyclists on May 31, 2012 along U.S. Route 151, which runs through Iowa and Wisconsin, killing two bikers of the “Muskegon Motorcycle Gang” and injuring eight others.

Among those who died in the crash were 59-year-old Twin Lake resident Daniel Winsemius and 43-year-old Muskegon local Douglas Yonkers.

According to police investigators, Lovelace’s car crossed the center line as he was driving on U.S. 151 and headed straight for the 12 motorcyclists, who were heading northbound to the Mackinac Bridge for their annual Bridge Run.

Lovelace confessed that he took oxycodone prior to driving, and authorities confiscated unused syringes at the time of his arrest.
