Sept. 24, 2017 – Dodge Co., WI – At approximately 8:34 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office took reports of a hit and run injury crash on STH 60 near CTH R in the Township of Hustisford involving a motorcycle and a white or silver truck.
The initial investigation shows the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on STH 60, with traffic following behind it, when a silver or white Ford truck began passing multiple vehicles.
The truck was also eastbound and merged back into the eastbound lane, sideswiping the motorcycle causing the operator of the motorcycle to lose control. The motorcycle operator and passenger were ejected from the motorcycle and neither subject was wearing a helmet.
