TOWN OF SUMPTER, Wis. - A Wisconsin Dells man was injured when he lost control of his motorcycle while going around a curve on Highway 12 Saturday afternoon, officials said.
Sauk County sheriff's deputies were dispatched to a single-motorcycle crash on Highway 12 just north of Wtaerbury Road in the town of Sumpter around 12:05 p.m., according to a release.
A 1994 Harley Davidson motorcycle, being driven by Richard P. Hurley, 58, of Wisconsin Dells, was northbound on Highway 12, investigators said. The motorcycle lost control while trying to negotiate a curve and crashed.
Hurley was not wearing a helmet, and he sustained non-life-threatening head injuries, officials said.
A strong cross wind may have been a contributing factor in Hurley losing control of the motorcycle, according the release. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
Hurley was transported by Sauk Prairie Ambulance Service to UW Hospital.
