Death toll continues days after car crashes with 12 motorcycles

A second man has succumbed to injuries he received in a horrific traffic accident several days ago when a group of 12 friends from Michigan were heading home on their motorcycles after a trip to Milwaukee. The group was hit head-on by a car that crossed the center line. The first victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Officers say some of the bikes came to rest nearly 600 yards away from where they were hit. Several emergency response vehicles were called to the scene of the multiple motorcycle accident on May 31 at 3 p.m., including five ambulances and three medical helicopters.

At least three of the motorcyclists were transported to Theda Clark Hospital with critical injuries. The rest were transported by ambulance to St. Agnes Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Authorities say all dozen of the bikers were wearing helmets and protective eye glasses. They also say that speed was not a factor. Results from a blood sample taken from the driver have not yet been determined. However, police believe he was under the influence of some sort of drugs or alcohol based on obvious impairment observed at the scene. The man says he was also taking prescription drugs.

The 25-year-old driver says he does not remember a thing. However, after recovering in the hospital, the driver was arrested. He was already wanted for felony bail jumping. He has now been charged with second degree reckless homicide, several counts of reckless injury, second degree recklessly endangering safety, and one count of felony bail jumping. He faces a possible 78 years in jail if convicted on all charges.
