On July 28th, 2018, at approximately 1:25pm the Richland County Communications Center was notified of a motorcycle verses pickup truck crash on State Hwy 56 at County Hwy A. A motorcycle operated by Kevin Graham, 47 of Mazomanie, WI was traveling Eastbound on State Hwy 56. As Graham approached the intersection with County Hwy A, a westbound pickup truck being operated by Karen Langer, 77 of Hillsboro, initiated a left hand turn to go South on County Hwy A. While Langer was negotiating the turn, Graham crested the hill and collided into the front of Langer’s truck. Graham’s motorcycle continued eastbound on State Hwy 56 and into the south ditch line just east of the intersection of County Hwy A where it came to rest. Karen Langer had no reported injuries.
