Several people were injured, including a young child, in an accident Saturday near Campbellsport involving three motorcycles. Authorities responded around 3pm to the Town of Osceola. A group of motorcycles was eastbound on Fond du Lac County Road F when a Sheboygan woman lost control while negotiating a curve, slid on the gravel shoulder and overturned. The 55-year-old was not wearing a helmet and suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Her nine-year-old passenger was ejected, was wearing a helmet and was treated and released from St. Agnes Hospital.
