Waupun Man Seriously Injured In Motorcycle Crash

(Waupun) A Waupun man was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash Sunday afternoon in the township of Waupun. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office was called to County Highway M, near Amity Road, around 4pm.

The initial investigation showed that the 21-year-old biker was traveling northbound on Highway M when he failed to maintain his control and entered the east ditch. Once the motorcycle entered the ditch, it overturned multiple times and the driver was ejected. The motorcyclist was transported by ThedaStar helicopter to the hospital in Neenah for treatment.

Authorities say he was wearing a full-face motorcycle helmet. Strong winds and a lack of experience operating a bike are believed to be factors in the crash.
