A single vehicle accident in Shawano County early this morning claimed a life. According to the sheriff’s office, a 25 year old Bowler man died after crashing his motorcycle into a culvert on County Highway “N”, east of Birnamwood, in the Town of Almon. Authorities say it happened around 3 a.m. today. A passerby called authorities after he saw headlights in the ditch while on his way to work. When deputies arrived on the scene, they found the Bowler man laying in the gravel, about 15 feet away from the cycle. Deputies performed CPR until the ambulance arrived. When emergency crews could not get a pulse, the Shawano County coroner was paged. The victim’s name has not been released as authorities continue to investigate the crash. This is the third person to die in a Shawano County crash this year.
