A motorcyclist was airlifted for treatment of his injuries after crashing his Harley Davidson into a trailer pulled by a tractor on Highway 61, July 6, according to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department.

At 9:37 p.m. Friday, the Crawford County Communications Center received a report of a motorcycle crash with injuries on Highway 61 at the intersection of Coalburn Road, in the township of Scott.

Kenneth Mohr, 72, of Blue River, was operating a 2007 Harley southbound on the highway. Brent Childs, 53, of Boscobel, was driving an Allis Chalmers WD45 tractor with a wagon hooked to the back of it. Childs attempted to cross 61 from Coalburn Road to Cadoma Road, but he entered the highway in front of Mohr. Mohr struck the right side of the trailer and was ejected from the motorcycle. He was not wearing a helmet in the crash. 

Mohr was transported to Gundersen Boscobel Area Hospital and later taken by MedLink Air to Gundersen in La Crosse. He was in critical condition as of press time Tuesday and, according to a spokesperson at Gundersen, remained a patient on Tuesday, July 10. 

Authorities said Childs was uninjured in the crash.  

Boscobel EMS, Boscobel Fire Department, Grant County Sheriff’s Office, and Fry’s Towing assisted at the scene.
