SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WBAY) - A 40-year-old Sheboygan Falls man is dead after crashing his motorcycle into a vehicle stopped for a light in Sheboygan Thursday afternoon.

Police identified the victim Friday as Todd Hitsman.

Officers say he was going north on S. Business Drive. Traffic was slowing and stopping for the traffic light at S. 14th St. and Indiana Ave.

Hitsman wasn’t able to negotiate and stop in time and crashed into the back of one of the vehicles. He was not wearing a helmet.

A citizen on the scene helped police and paramedics with life-saving efforts, but the man died later from his injuries at the hospital.

Police are still investigating the crash and would like to hear from any witnesses or anyone who has information that would be helpful to the investigation. Police don’t believe any other vehicles were involved.
