Not guilty plea entered in fatal motorcycle group crash

Lovelace faces 12 felonies in crash

A driver accused of crashing into a group of motorcyclists, killing two Michigan men, plead not guilty to all charges in Wisconsin.

Twenty-five-year-old Clinton Lovelace appeared in Fond du Lac County court Friday. He faced 12 felonies stemming from the crash on Highway 151 last May.

Fifty-nine-year-old Daniel Winsemius, of Twin Lakes, Mich., was killed at the scene. Forty-three-year-old Douglas Yonkers, of Muskegon, Mich., died about a week later at the hospital. Seven of the 10 other motorcyclists were hurt in the crash.

The motorcyclists are members of the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang. They were headed back to Michigan at the time of the crash.

WLUK-TV reported Lovelace’s attorney requested a competency evaluation, saying the defendant suffers from amnesia because of head injuries suffered in the crash. The judge granted the request.
