Goodrich couple killed in motorcycle accident

July 14, 2010 - A Goodrich couple died following a motorcycle crash July 9 on I-75.

The operator of the motorcycle, Anthony Taliercio, 48, and his wife Karen Taliercio, 48, were northbound on I-75 two miles north of the M-33 exit in Moffatt Township, Arenac County. The 2003 Harley Davidson motorcycle which the couple was riding changed lanes and was unable to stop in time for a slower moving vehicle in the right lane with the hazard lights operating, according to a Michigan State Police report from the West Branch Post. The motorcycle collided with the rear of a 2010 Dodge pickup truck.

The driver of the pickup truck, a 29-year-old Brighton man, was uninjured in the crash.

Anthony Taliercio died at the scene as a result of his injuries. Karen Taliercio was air-lifted from the scene to Saginaw St. Mary's Hospital. She was transferred to Hurley Medical Center where she died on July 11, according to an obituary.

The couple was married in 1981 and had three children along with one grandchild.

Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
