Michigan woman ‘was high’ when she hit motorcyclist

Prosecutors say a 20-year-old woman was high on marijuana when she hit and killed a motorcyclist in Lansing, Michigan in September. 

The incident happened September 22 just before 8pm, when Logan Brooke Turner was crossing oncoming traffic to turn into a local business. 

Turner hit motorcyclist Blair Reubin Beck, 21, who was driving southbound when Turner pulled across the street from the northbound lane and struck him.

Logan Brooke Turner, 20 (left), was arraigned last week on a charge of operating while intoxicated causing death after she hit and killed motorcyclist Blair Reubin Beck, 21 (right), on September 22 

The crash happened on South Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, near Ferley Street. 

Beck later died and Turner’s blood tested positive for marijuana.

At an arraignment on Wednesday, Turner was hit with one count of operating while intoxicated causing death. 

Ingham County Prosecutor Carol Siemon declined to go into further details about the case. 

OWI causing death is a felony, and typically carries a maximum of 15 years in prison, according to the Detroit Free-Press. 

According to his obituary, Beck was a 2014 graduate of Grande Ledge High School and worked at the Grand Pointe Marina in Dimondale.

‘He was a talented mechanic; enjoyed motorcycles, cars, video games, hunting and fishing; especially loved his time spent with family on Drummond Island and all of his friends.

‘Blair was an experienced motorcycle rider who always enjoyed helping others with any problem they might have,’ the obituary read. 

He was survived by his parents, a sister, and much of his extended family.
