Motorcycles Skid Crash

A pair of motorcycles wiped out after going through a slippery part of the highway in rural Galena. The Jo Davies County Sheriff’s Office responded to the area of Highway 20W, near Eagle Ridge Drive, at 2:53 pm Monday. Officers learned that two seperate motorcycles, driven by 37-year old Jeremy Hodges, of Beulah, Michigan and 40-year old Justin Hodges of Bellevue, Michigan, were travelling through a construction zone which has been recently laid with oil. Due to the rainy conditions, once both motorcycles struck the oil, they lost control causing them to lay down and skid across the road. Both units came to rest in the ditch on the south side of the roadway. Jeremy was transported to Midwest Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. The accident remains under investigation.
