Information Sought In Fatal Milwaukee WI Motorcycle Wreck
The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information from witnesses who may have seen a motorcycle accident occur on northbound I-894 late on Monday, October 12. The crash resulted in the death of 56-year-old Milwaukee resident Richard Holtz, who was riding his motorcycle with a single passenger at the time.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called to the scene of a motorcycle crash on northbound I-894 near Lincoln Avenue shortly after 9:00 p.m. on Monday night. Holtz had suffered severe head trauma as a result of the wreck, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Holtz’s passenger, a 57-year-old woman, was transported to Froedtert emergency room with non-life-threatening injuries to her neck and back; however, she does not recall any details of the accident.
Police have determined that property damage to the motorcycle—a 1998 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide—is consistent with the front end of the bike hitting another vehicle or object on the road. However, the Sheriff’s Office has yet to make further connections in their investigation, and questions regarding the possibility of a hit-and-run crash are still unanswered. Call the county communications center at 414-278-4788 if you have any information that may be helpful.
