One killed in Highway 51 crash UPDATE

A motorcyclist was killed Saturday evening when his bike collided with an automobile on U.S. Highway 51 near County Highway L in the town of Nokomis.

According to an Oneida County sheriff's press release, 9-1-1 callers reported the accident at approximately 5:08 p.m.

Upon arrival of emergency units, the operator of the motorcycle was found to be deceased, the release states. Authorities have since identified him as Kevin Chiapuzio, 47, of Ironwood, Mich.

A second person, who has not been identified, was transported to the hospital by ambulance. As of Sunday evening, that person was still being treated, authorities said.

Highway 51, between County Highway L and Highway 8, was closed for several hours to allows law enforcement to investigate the crash.

Oneida County deputies were assisted by the Minocqua Police Department, the Wisconsin State Patrol, the Nokomis Fire Department, the Cassian Fire Department, Oneida County Emergency Medical Services, and the Oneida County Medical Examiner's Office.

The accident remains under investigation.

Who is responsible for the vitriolic climate in American politics today?

Please select one:
I blame the president, his followers and the Republican Party.
I blame the Democratic Party, especially the rabid anti-Trumpers.
Stunts and rhetoric from people on both sides of the political aisle have brought us to this point.
Neither political party is responsible. The media is actually to blame.
Im not going to point a finger at anyone. We should all take an honest look at our own conduct.
