The night before the crash in July 2009, Jason Kott of Traverse City was performing at cava in Bay Harbor.
“I had gone back the morning after to eat breakfast and pick up my equipment, and was headed towards Elk Rapids. I was just five miles north of Elk Rapids and there was an elderly woman waiting to turn left behind someone else. She decided to just go ahead and turn left and I crashed into her head on. I broke eight ribs, an ankle and fractured two vertebrae in my back,” said Kott.
