The motorcyclist seriously injured in an accident Saturday evening was cited by Mount Pleasant police for operating while intoxicated and violation of a traffic control signal.
MPPD Sgt. Matthew Soens said in a written release that the 54-year-old John Gonzalez of Racine, was driving his motorcycle east on Durand Avenue at 6:49 p.m. when he hit the back of a pick-up truck making a left turn south onto Oakes Road.
Gonzalez suffered serious head injuries and broken bones, and he was taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital for treatment. His condition is unknown at this time.
Alcohol and traveling at excessive speed are believed to be factors in this accident, Soens wrote.
The driver of the pickup was not injured.
