Two Madison, Wis., teenagers were killed Tuesday when their motorcycle was hit head-on by a semitrailer, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
The accident took place at roughly 5 p.m on U.S. Highway 51 in Leeds, Wis., south of Arlington, the newspaper reported.
The Columbia County Sheriff’s Office issued a news release that identified the deceased as Jeremy Brewster, 17, who was the motorcycle driver and Trevor Jones, 17, his passenger. Both youths were declared dead at the scene.
A semitrailer that was going south on Highway 51 crossed a center line on the highway and hit the motorcycle, which was traveling north, according to the release from the sheriff’s office. The accident took place near the intersection of Highway 51 and Highway 22.
A medical helicopter, ambulances and sheriff’s officers at 6 p.m. were performing CPR on one of the victims, the Wisconsin State Journal reported. But then they stopped, and then covered the body.
The truck driver, who lives in Portage, wasn’t injured, the paper said.
