18-year-old dies after motorcycle crash in West Allis; speed believed to be factor
WEST ALLIS — An 18-year-old man was critically injured, and later died after a motorcycle crash Saturday night, July 22nd in West Allis.
It happened around 11:15 p.m. at the intersection of Highway 100 and Dakota.
Officials say the operator of the motorcycle was traveling north on Highway 100 when he lost control of the motorcycle. Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.
First responders found the man in the road with severe injuries and attempted life-saving efforts. Despite those efforts, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man’s mother on Monday identified the man as Vincent Greco. A GoFundMe.com account established to raise money for his funeral features a message reading as follows:
“Our dear son Vincent Greco, 18 years old, was killed in a motorcycle accident on July 22, 2017. Vincent was an extremely outgoing, friendly, motivated, talented young man and just graduated from high school in June. He was contemplating going into the military and while that was in the works, he was a top salesman for Sprint. Vincent was an avid bowler, excelled in everything athletic, played the violin, and enjoyed friendly competition of any kind with his 5 siblings. His death was nothing less than a completely devastating shock, and any financial help in his burial would be extremely helpful.
The money will be used for the funeral expenses and grave with headstone
We have also donated anything from Vincent that could be taken to save the lives of others.”
The crash remains under investigation by West Allis police.
