TOWN OF GREEN VALLEY, WI – One man is dead after a motorcycle crash in Shawano County. This happened around 7:00 p.m. Saturday, on CTH E near Plier Road. Officials have identified the victim as 48 year-old Scott K. Courchaine of Gillett, Wisconsin.
Police say the man had severe head trauma, and was not wearing a helmet. He was pronounced dead at the scene by the Shawano County Deputy Coroner.
