Former Wisconsin Senator Injured in Motorcycle Accident

Former Wisconsin Senator Dave Zien was injured in a motorcycle accident in Florida Monday.

According to officials with the Florida Highway Patrol, the 59 year-old Eau Claire native was in Florida for the Daytona Beach Bike Week when he was injured in a motorcycle crash on Interstate 10 early Monday. Authorities say Zien was traveling behind an SUV on the interstate, when the vehicle tried to change lanes, lost control, and rolled onto its side. Zien could not avoid hitting the SUV, police say.

According to authorities, Zien was transported by ambulance to the intensive care unit of the Tallahassee Memorial Medical Center for treatment. Hospital officials say Zien broke a hip and lost part of his left leg in the accident.

Zien was a champion of motorcycle rights during his 13-year run as a Wisconsin Senator. He is a member of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame.
