Minnesotans involved in motorcycle crash in Wisconsin, one dies

It happened near Menomonie.

A Minnesotan has died and another is seriously injured in a crash involving two motorcycles in Wisconsin.

The crash happened on State Rd. 64 in New Haven Township, northwest of Menomonie, at around 1:30 p.m. Saturday.

Dunn County deputies learned that a group of bikers were east on State Rd. 64 and had planned to head south on County Road Q.

But as they approached the county road, a male rider struck the back of another bike, driven by a woman.

Both of them were thrown from their bikes, and neither of them were wearing helmets.

The woman was taken to the Mayo Clinic-Menomonie with serious injuries, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene despite life-saving attempts.
