UPDATE: Fatal motorcycle crash in Rothschild


ROTHSCHILD (WAOW) - The Rothschild Police Department says it's waiting for results from the Marathon County crash reconstruction team to determine what could have caused a deadly motorcycle crash.

Police say Seth E.W. Stadler, 21, died in the crash Thursday after his motorcycle crashed with a pickup truck.

Rothschild investigators say a pickup truck driven by a 16-year-old girl was exiting state Highway 51 from the ramp onto Business 51 about 8:30 p.m. Thursday and collided with the northbound motorcycle on Business 51.

Interim Rothschild Police Chief Jeremy Hunt tells Newsline 9 that once the reconstruction team completes its report, the police department will meet with the district attorney's office to determine if any citations are warranted.

"It appears that speed and alcohol may be contributing factors in crash," Hunt said.
