Crash of two motorcycles kills one driver


RHINELANDER (WAOW) – A 50-year-old Merrill motorcyclist has died from injuries he suffered in a crash with another motorcycle during the annual motorcycle rally in northern Wisconsin, the Oneida County Sheriff's Department said Wednesday.

Benjamin Guite Sr. died Wednesday at a Wausau hospital from injuries suffered in the crash last Friday in the Town of Nokomis in rural Oneida County, Sheriff Grady Hartman said in a statement.

The crash happened about 9:45 p.m., the first night of the weekend fall rally in Tomahawk. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, Hartman said.

According to investigators, a motorcycle driven by Lynette Haman, 49, of Elkhorn was southbound on County Highway L, when she made a left turn in front of Guite's northbound motorcycle.

Haman was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield, where she was listed in fair condition Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said.
