Man, 34, killed in motorcycle accident in Dodge County | By Dodge County Sheriff

October 17, 2021 – Township of Beaver Dam, WI – The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a traffic crash involving a death, which occurred on S. Center Road, near Jackson Road, in the Township of Beaver Dam.

Shortly after 5 am on Sunday, October 17, 2021, the Dodge County Sheriff’s office received a report of a motorcycle in the ditch, and a man nearby with no signs of life.

The man, 34, from rural Beaver Dam, was later pronounced dead at the scene.

 The investigation so far shows  the motorcycle was southbound on S. Center Rd, failed to negotiate a curve, and entered the ditch with the driver being thrown from the motorcycle.

The man was not wearing a helmet, and excessive speed and alcohol impairment are suspected of being possible factors.  The crash most likely occurred sometime in the approximate 2 hours prior to discovery.

Assisting at the crash scene were the Beaver Dam Police Department, Beaver Dam Fire and Rescue, DCERT, and the Dodge County Medical Examiner.  The crash remains under investigation.
