One Person Injured in Winnebago County Motorcycle Accident

March 28, 2013

A Wisconsin motorcycle accident that occurred in the town of Menasha this week was responsible for leaving one man injured. The crash happened yesterday at approximately 4:45 p.m. along U.S. 41 in Winnebago County.

According to an article published in a recent issue of the Appleton Post Crescent, the 23-year-old male victim, from the town of Neenah, was traveling southbound along the highway. As he rode his motorcycle near Prospect Avenue, the 48-year-old driver of another vehicle, from Appleton, stuck the motorcycle while attempting to change lanes.

The impact of the collision sent the bike and it’s rider to the asphalt, and the man driving the other vehicle fled the scene.

The motorcyclist suffered serious cuts and bruises as a result of the crash. He was taken to a local trauma center where he was treated and released. Meanwhile, the driver of the second vehicle involved in the crash was tracked down by law enforcement. He was placed under arrest and charged with hit-and-run causing injury, unsafe lane deviation, failure to stop for traffic signals, and a speed-related infraction.
