LAPEER, MI – On Monday February 15th, 2021, at 6:45 PM, Lapeer County 911 dispatched Lapeer County Sheriff’s Deputies to an injury traffic crash involving a snowmobile on Suppi Drive in Lapeer County’s Mayfield Township.
It was moderately snowing and 49-year-old Thomas Boyce, from Dearborn Heights, was visiting friends within the immediate area. Boyce left the property of his friends on a snowmobile. He traveled east on Suppi Drive operating a 2004 Arctic Cat snowmobile. The snowmobile entered the cul-de-sac at the end and slammed into a tree “head on”.
Boyce was transported to McLaren in Lapeer where he died due to his injuries shortly after he arrived for critical treatment.
Toxicology reports remain pending to determine if either drugs or alcohol were factors in the fatal snowmobile crash. This case remains under investigation by the Lapeer County Sheriff’s Office.
