A motorcyclist from Schaumburg, Ill. was injured when his motorcycle was rear-ended, according to a release from the Green County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies were called to the W800 block of State Highway 11 in the town of Spring Grove at 10:31 a.m. Thursday for a report of a vehicle versus motorcycle crash.

Trimarco was taken to Mercy Hospital in Janesville. He was wearing a helmet and eye protection.
Westgard was cited for following too close.
Both vehicles had to be towed from the scene, deputies said.
