Carson — A 27-year-old man from Milladore died early Wednesday in a single-vehicle motorcycle crash in the town of Carson.

The Portage County Communications Center received a report at approximately 1:04 a.m. from an Alliant Energy worker who discovered the crash while investigating a power outage that had occurred about an hour earlier.

According to Sheriff Mike Lukas, the crash occurred on County Hwy. G, north of Oriole Road.

The rider, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected from the motorcycle and pronounced dead at the scene.

Portage County sheriff’s deputies, along with emergency units from Rudolph Fire/Rescue, Portage County Ambulance, Portage County Medical Examiner, and the Wood County Sheriff’s Office, responded to the incident.
