A motorcyclist is charged in the drunk driving death of another biker during last month's Harley-Davidson Fall Ride at Tomahawk. 50-year-old Lynette Haman Elkhorn is due in Oneida County Circuit Court November 18th. She's charged with two felony counts of causing homicide by drunk driving, and with a prohibited blood alcohol content. Sheriff's officials said Haman's motorcycle turned left in the path of an oncoming bike at an intersection north of Tomahawk on September 13th.
One of the two motorcyclists injured in a crash last weekend north of Tomahawk has died.
The Oneida County Sheriff's Department reports 50-year-old Benjamin J. Guite, Sr. of Merrill died Wednesday at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. The second motorcyclist, 49 year old Lynette A. Haman of Elkhorn, Wisconsin was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield. Her condition was not released.
Deputies report the crash happened Friday night about 9:30 p.m. at Oneida county "L" and Prairie Rapids Road. Haman's motorcycle is said to have turned in front of Guite's northbound motorcyle.
