Off Duty Nurse and Paramedic Try to Revive Cudahy Man after Motorcycle Accident
An off duty nurse and paramedic tried to rescue a Cudahy man after a serious accident occurred between a motorcycle and a tractor trailer.
The accident occurred on Friday around 8:23 AM.
According to Racine County Sheriff’s Office, dispatch received multiple 911 calls reporting an accident involving a tractor trailer and a motorcycle on STH 83 at Pine Street.
Information provided to dispatch was that witnesses to the crash, which included an off duty nurse and paramedic were performing CPR on the motorcycle operator, however these attempts were unsuccessful due to his injuries.
Initial investigation of the crash shows the operator of the commercial motor vehicle was driving westbound on the bypass and was attempting to turn South onto Pine St. The operator of the motorcycle, a 56 year old male from Cudahy was driving east bound on the bypass when he collided with the truck.
At the time of the crash the traffic signals were working properly and it appears the operator of the truck failed to yield to the right of way of the motorcycle operator.
