West Allis Police asking witnesses to fatal motorcycle crash on Hwy 100 to come forward
On July 22, 2017, at about 11:16 pm, officers responded to a report of a single vehicle motorcycle crash at the intersection of HWY 100 and Dakota.
Upon arrival officers located an 18-year-old male in the road with severe injuries. Lifesaving efforts were attempted by West Allis Police and Fire personnel, but despite their best efforts, the operator passed away on scene.
The preliminary investigation determined the motorcycle was traveling north bound on HWY 100 when the operator lost control of the motorcycle near the intersection of HWY 100 and Dakota.
Speed is believed to be a factor in this crash.
Officers at the scene of the crash noticed a lot of people were in the general vicinity, it appeared that some of them were using their phones to record video of the scene, and there appeared to be a drone in the air near the crash scene.
As Traffic Investigators continue their investigation into this incident, they ask anyone who witnessed the crash or has additional information about the crash (including anyone who may have captured video or photographs of the area immediately before or after the crash) to contact the West Allis Police Department.
