A truck accident involving a motorcycle over the weekend injured three Wisconsin motorists Saturday night in Sullivan, a town about 30 miles outside Milwaukee. The crash occurred around 7:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 18, about a half mile west of Highland Drive.
According to recent news reports and the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the crash occurred when a 1971 Chevrolet Corvette driven by Brain Hartig, of Waukesha, traveling eastbound on US 18 attempted to pass another vehicle by entering the westbound lane. While attempting the pass, Hartig’s Corvette struck the motorcycle of Timothy Thiel, of Jefferson.
Both Thiel and his female passenger, identified as Jody Orchel, of West Allis, were taken to Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Milwaukee by Flight for Life, following the truck accident requiring a pittsburgh truck accident lawyer for one of the victims. According to authorities, neither Thiel nor Orchel were wearing a safety helmet while riding his Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Their current conditions have not been released to the public at this time.
