A single vehicle crash involving a 19 year old Madison man occurred on Monday, August 30th, at 7 p.m. in Madison. According to police, he was getting into a turn lane and hit a curb, along the median.
The man lost control, fell, and hit his head. He later died at a hospital.
The motorcycle was Eastbound on East Washington Street near North 6th Avenue. East Washington Street is a three-lane boulevard with a left turn lane governed by a 35 MPH speed limit. This was likely a low speed crash as the driver was approaching the intersection to turn left when the motorcycle made contact with the median curb. If the driver was wearing a helmet, one could surmise that a fatal, traumatic head injury would not have occurred.
