One motorcyclist killed, one critically hurt after pair of weekend crashes

KENOSHA COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - One motorcyclist was killed and another was critically injured in a pair of Kenosha County crashes that happened within 30 minutes of each other during the weekend.

The first accident occurred Saturday afternoon in the town of Randall. 

Authorities said four bikers were riding together when a gust of wind caused 51-year-old Joseph Fox of Bristol to veer out of control. He fell from his cycle, struck his head on the roadway, and died later at a Burlington hospital. 

The other crash happened about a half hour later in the Kenosha County town of Brighton. A man lost control of his bike on a curve, was thrown from the unit, and hit his head. 

He was in critical condition at last word. Sheriff's officials said neither Fox nor the other injured biker were wearing helmets.
