Woman arrested after crash involving two motorcycles in Burlington

On July 4 at 4:30 PM Racine County Sheriffs Deputies responded to Durand Avenue in Burlington near Fischer Park for a report of an accident involving two motorcycles and one car.

Through their investigation, deputies learned a car being driven by 46-year-old Kansasville woman Kristen Sewell was pulling out of a business and failed to yield the right of way to two eastbound motorcycles. Both motorcycles hit the car and were injured.

One motorcycle driver was a 62-year-old man from Chicago who was transported to the Memorial Hospital of Burlington for non-life threatening injuries. The second motorcycle driver, a 55-year-old Kansasville woman, was transported by rescue to the Memorial Hospital of Burlington and then transported by Flight For Life to Froedtert Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Neither motorcycle operator was wearing a helmet.

Officials believe alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident and Sewell has been arrested for two counts of failure to yield the right of way causing injury and two felony counts of OWI causing injury and is being held in the Racine County Jail.
