Ex.-Wis. state senator injured in crash



MARIANNA, Fla. (AP) -- A former Wisconsin state senator is in serious condition after a vehicle crash in north Florida.


The Florida Highway Patrol says 60-year-old former State Senator Dave Zien, of Eau Claire, Wis., was eastbound when 24-year-old Ryan G. Matheny, of Marietta, Ohio lost control of the sports utility vehicle he was driving. Zien's motorcycle then clipped the vehicle, and he was thrown from the bike.

Authorities charged the other driver with failing to maintain line and driving while license suspended, troopers wrote.
