RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAU) - A two motorcycle crash that happened Friday in Oneida County has led to a fatality.

Oneida County Sheriff’s investigators say a motorcycle driven by 49-year-old Lynette Haman of Elkhorn was southbound on County Highway L when she made a left turn into the path of another motorcycle driven by 50-year-old Benjamin Guite, Sr of Merrill.

Both were seriously hurt. Haman remains hospitalized at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield. Guite died Wednesday at Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

The investigation into the crash is continuing. Investigators believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
