Mount Pleasant crash leaves Whitefish Bay man dead: police

A Whitefish Bay man was killed in a Mount Pleasant crash on Friday afternoon, April 30.

Police responded to the crash, near State Highway 20 and Sunnyslope Drive, just after 3 p.m. for a crash involving a truck that struck a motorcycle.

Officers and South Shire fire personnel began immediately rendering assistance to the motorcycle operator -- a 38-year-old Whitefish Bay man -- who was injured and unresponsive.

He later succumbed to his injuries and was declared dead at the scene by the medical examiner.

Police said a 77-year-old Racine man, the driver of the Toyota pickup truck that struck the motorcyclist, was not injured.

There are no suspicions of alcohol use for either driver. Driver-related actions appear to be the cause.

The highway was shut down for a few hours and reopened once preliminary investigations were concluded. The Mount Pleasant Police Department and Wisconsin State Patrol will be continuing the investigation.
