Two Onalaska residents are transported to the hospital with potentially serious injuries from a motorcycle accident.

Theodore R. Space, 58, and Christine M. Olson, 58, of Onalaska, were taken to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse with potentially serious injuries following a motorcycle crash July 14.

Space was driving the motorcycle southbound on Shingle Hollow Road, south of State Highway 56, according to the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office.

While traveling downhill, and negotiating a curve to the right, Space encountered some loose pavement and went off the left side of the roadway.

Space and Olson were ejected when the motorcycle went on its side. Neither were wearing helmets and suffered potentially serious injuries.

Both were transported by Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance. Assisting the Sheriff’s Office at the scene were the Genoa Fire Department, Genoa First Responders, and Gundersen Tri-State Ambulance.
