A 75-year-old Chatham woman was traveling eastbound on Grand Avenue East when she turned left into a private driveway in front of a 55-year-old Chatham man traveling westbound on a motorcycle. The man tried to take evasive action to avoid the collision and bailed on his bike before it slid into the woman’s car. He had a hand injury and was taken to the hospital by an ambulance.

Total damage was estimated at $5000.

The woman was charged with making a turn not in safety.
