Man charged in fatal motorcycle accident pleaded not guilty

Twenty-two-year-old Wisconsin Rapids resident Louis Walker pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from a fatal motorcycle accident on May 17, 2014, the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune reported on November 24.

Walker was charged in the Wood County Circuit Court with intoxicated use of a motor vehicle, resulting in the death of 29-year-old Holmen resident Michael Anderson. According to reports, Walker turned left onto Highway 73, and Anderson’s motorcycle crashed into the driver’s side of the car. Anderson was declared dead at the scene of the accident. He was not wearing a motorcycle helmet at the time of the crash.

Walker alleged that he checked both lanes before turning, but only saw the oncoming motorcycle when it was too late. According to the criminal complaint, Walker was found to have a blood alcohol concentration of .044% when local authorizes gave him a sobriety test. His blood also tested for marijuana and morphine, which the complaint suggested could have created a dangerous state of intoxication.
