A two-vehicle accident killed a motorcyclist on State Highway 54 in the Town of Liberty on Tuesday.
Outagamie County Sheriff’s Officials say they received a call just after 4 p.m. east of Lower Rd.
According to witnesses, a 55-year-old Michigan woman attempted to pass another vehicle while heading east when she was struck and killed by a westbound vehicle. Although she was wearing a helmet, she died at the scene.
The driver of the other vehicle, a 22-year-old man from New London, was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The accident closed that portion of State Highway 54 for about three hours, according to sheriff’s officials.
