MENASHA, Wis. (WFRV) – A car versus motorcycle crash has sent the cyclist and their passenger to the hospital, reports Menasha Police.
According to a release, police are investigating the crash that happened on June 10 around 9 p.m. near Midway Road and Opportunity Way.
Officers say a 16-year-old boy from Appleton was reported aggressively driving a car that belonged to his relative just before crossing the centerline of Midway Road, hitting a motorcycle.
Both the cyclist and their passenger were transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
“Typically a crash involving serious injuries will result in a request for the drivers to provide a voluntary blood sample, which was done in this situation,” says Menasha Police Lt. Albrecht.
Menasha police don’t believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, but say the teen will be referred for reckless driving and potentially other charges depending on the investigation.
