The weather’s getting warmer, and we’ve been cooped up, but that’s no reason to be unsafe on the road, especially on a motorcycle.
At about 8:30 Friday night, 61-year-old Thomas Wicinski of Ottawa was on his bike, near the entrance to Buffalo Rock State Park when he wiped out coming out of a curve, slid into the south ditch, and hit a road sign.
Sheriff’s deputies cited Wicinski for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident, DUI and other offenses. Dispatch reported he wasn’t wearing a helmet. He was given a court date.
