Man dies from moped accident in Liberty Grove

A 54-year-old man from Franklin died from injuries sustained in a moped accident on Highway 42 in the town of Liberty Grove Tuesday night.  The Door County Sheriff’s Office was notified about 7:20 p.m. on Tuesday about a one-vehicle crash just north of Seaquist Road.  The initial investigation shows that the man, who was driving a 2021 Taizhou Zhongneng Wolf RX-50 moped, lost control of his moped and was ejected after hitting the ditch on the west side of the highway, and struck a culvert pipe. 

The man was transported to Door County Medical Center by Eagle III helicopter with life-threatening injuries before passing away at the hospital.

The accident remains under investigation and the name of the victim is being withheld until the family is notified.  This marks the third fatality on Door County roads this year.
