Posted:

MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- A late night accident on University Avenue near the intersection of Allen Blvd. claimed the life of one motorcyclist.

Officials say the man was riding with two friends when he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed. Witnesses at the scene say it looked like the man crashed into a speed limit sign. A sign just a few feet away from the motorcycle was bent back and damaged. Police haven't been able to confirm that.

Police say no other vehicles were involved in the crash.

The eastbound lanes of University Avenue were closed while a medical team investigated the accident.

Police are waiting to release the name of the motorcyclist until family members are notified.
