PLEASANT PRAIRIE -- Pleasant Prairie police need your help locating a vehicle after a hit-and-run involving two motorcycles on Tuesday night, May 3rd. Looking at the wreckage left behind, investigators said it's a miracle the bikers walked away from the crash.
"It's truly a miracle that both of these men are going to walk away from this," Pleasant Prairie Police Lt. Paul Marik said.
It happened around 10:30 p.m. near 110th Street and Green Bay Road, as a group of about 10 motorcyclists was traveling northbound.
A vehicle came from behind at about 90 miles-per-hour.
"Some of the bikers in the left lane and some of the bikers in the rear were moving over into the right lane to allow the vehicle to pass," Lt. Marik said.
The suspect vehicle struck one of the bikes, which then tumbled into another bike.
A member of the group of motorcyclists then sped up to follow the suspect vehicle for about a quarter-mile. That person was able to provide police with a description of the vehicle.
Police say the suspect vehicle is a red or maroon four-door Dodge with black rims.
The vehicle should have heavy front end damage with a cracked windshield on the passenger side.
The vehicle should have an Illinois license plate.
Debris left at the scene could help police in this case. Car parts found have serial numbers that could lead police to more information.
Police say a passenger in the suspect vehicle at the time of the incident was described as a 25 to 30-year-old black female with short hair, wearing a red shirt with gold writing on it.
Police say one motorcycle that was struck was operated by a 31-year-old Kenosha man. He was taken to St. Catherine's Hospital and later transferred to Froedtert Hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.
The second motorcycle was operated by a 30-year-old male from Waukegan, Illinois who was not injured.
Both motorcycle operators were wearing helmets at the time, police said.
"These gentlemen are extremely lucky. It's my opinion their helmets had a lot to do with it," Lt. Marik said.
Anyone with information related to this accident is asked to contact the Pleasant Prairie Police Department at (262) 694-7353 or Kenosha Area Crime Stoppers at (800) 807-8477.
