Three motorcycle crashes send five to hospital
Moped rider also hurt after hitting car

It was a tough couple days for motorized two-wheelers in Northeastern Wisconsin, with three serious motorcycle crashes and even a moped crash to mar what was otherwise reportedly a fairly safe holiday weekend.
A moped driver suffered minor head and arm injuries late Monday afternoon after colliding with an Oldsmobile in the parking lot of Target at Lime Kiln Road and Allouez Avenue in Bellevue. It happened about 4:30 p.m.
About five hours earlier, a tire blowout caused injury to two people traveling on a motorcycle on U.S. 41, between Norfield Road and Brown County B in the village of Suamico.
The motorcycle was southbound on U.S. 41 when a tire blew, causing the vehicle to crash, throwing the driver and passenger. The EAGLE III emergency helicopter of County Rescue Services flew them to an area hospital for treatment.
The southbound lanes of the highway remained closed for about an hour during cleanup.
The names of those involved were not released. The crash remains under investigation.
Sunday crashes

Two Hobart residents were injured in a motorcycle crash Sunday evening in the Oconto County town of Brazeau, according to the Oconto County Sheriff's Department.

It happened at 7:37 p.m. on Parkway and Lee Lake roads. Daniel Malinski, 54, of 764 Fernando Drive, was riding his motorcycle south on Parkway Road when he crested a hill and saw a northbound car starting to turn in front of him, according to the sheriff's department report

Although the car stopped before crossing his path, Malinski tried to stop, lost control and slid into a ditch. Malinski and his passenger, Candice Allen, 55, also of 764 Fernando Drive, were thrown.

Both were taken to Oconto Falls Memorial Hospital, then transferred to St. Vincent Hospital, which was not given clearance to release their conditions. They were not wearing helmets.
The driver of the car, Jeanne Costabile, 51, of Racine was uninjured.
A 28-year-old Green Bay man was injured shortly after noon Sunday when his motorcycle collided with a car on Waube Lane and Allied Street in Ashwaubenon.
Ryan Jahner was traveling east on Waube Lane when he collided with a Cadillac being driven west on Waube by a 66-year-old De Pere woman, who turned left into Jahner's path, according the Ashwaubenon Department of Public Safety.
Jahner, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown from the cycle. His condition at St. Vincent Hospital wasn't released.
