Details of motorcycle accident released
Details of one of the motorcycle accidents that occurred early Sunday morning have been released. Alcohol played a role in this accident. According to a Kenosha Police Department report:
“At about 2:40 a.m., Cody J. Grno, 21, was found on the ground lying unconscious, but breathing, some 30 feet from his 2010 Harley-Davidson after he apparently went off the roadway, struck two bushes, a fence post and a utility pole before coming to rest on a sidewalk in the 1600 block of 56th Street.
Kenosha Fire Department paramedics transported Grno to Kenosha Medical Center. From there, he was transferred to Froedtert Hospital, in Milwaukee.
Grno apparently called a cousin, asking to be picked up from a tavern in the 1700 block of 52nd Street. The cousin told police he drove Grno around to let him “sober up,” but Grno had him drive him back to the bar to get his motorcycle. The cousin reportedly urged Grno repeatedly not to drive, but Grno only agreed to be followed home. Grno allegedly accelerated at high speed, blew stop signs and disregarded flashing red traffic lights, and the cousin quickly lost sight of him. He only saw Grno again after following a police squad car to the scene of the wreck.
Grno was cited for operating while intoxicated. No other vehicles were involved, and nobody else was reported injured.”
The medical condition, nature and extent of injuries incurred by Grno, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the accident, remain unavailable this morning. If an update is received, it will be updated here. Check back for more details.
