Two dead in Outagamie County motorcycle crash

OUTAGAMIE COUNTY, Wis. - UPDATE: The Outagamie County Sheriff's Department confirmed that the drivers of both motorcycles died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Deputies first responded to the scene at 1:39 AM.

According to a press release, a 27-year-old man from Kaukauna was traveling south on County Highway O and was negotiating a curve where it begins a westbound direction.

The driver of the other motorcycle was a 29-year-old man from Little Chute, with a 22-year-old female from Oneida as passenger. That motorcycle was going eastbound on County Highway O approaching the curve to head northbound.

As the 27-year-old negotiated the curve, he collided with the 29-year-old and his passenger.
