You can play a role in helping motorcyclists return home safely after Door and Kewaunee counties have seen a number of motorcycle accidents this summer, including two fatalities. Kewaunee County has seen two motorcycle-related accidents happen within the last week, including last Wednesday when the Kewaunee Police Department announced that 67-year-old Paul Hirst of Kewaunee died after striking a sports utility vehicle with his motorcycle. In July, 23-year-old Bradley Jordan of Sturgeon Bay passed away after he was struck by a motorist in Baileys Harbor. Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says motorists in four-wheeled vehicles need to be extra vigilant when driving around their two-wheeled peers.
Oconto County has also had a motorcyclist die as the result of injuries from an accident it had with a vehicle this month. Joski encourages all motorcyclists to wear the correct safety apparel and do all that they can to keep each other safe on the roadways.
