Moped accident victim identified

A moped accident that killed a Franklin man remains under investigation after the Door County Sheriff’s Department identified the victim on Friday. The department announced that 54-year-old Eric Rutkowski was behind the handlebars of a moped when he crashed on State Highway 42 near Seaquist Road Tuesday evening. The initial investigation suggests that Rutkowski lost control of the moped and was ejected when he went into a ditch, striking a culvert pipe in the process. He was transported by helicopter to Door County Medical Center to be treated for his injuries where he later died. Although the autopsy of Rutkowski’s body was performed on Wednesday, the results are not available and no further information is being released at this time.
