Final biker released from hospital after Wisconsin motorcycle crash

It has been a long and arduous three months for a man badly injured in a Wisconsin motorcycle accident, but he got a roar of approval as he finally got to go home.

About 100 people greeted the man as he left a rehabilitation medical facility after spending months on the mend after the Memorial Day crash that killed two of his friends, injured six others and left him with a severed leg.

Though the man rolled from the rehab facility, it was in a wheelchair rather than on his preferred Harley-Davidson. Doctors say he will soon be fitted with a prosthetic leg, however.

About 60 motorcycles escorted the car carrying the biker, 52, and his wife as they made their way from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to their home in Muskegon.

The May 31 accident was in Fond du Lac County when a dozen motorcyclists from Muskegon were riding north on U.S. 151 near Taycheedah. It was just before three in the afternoon when a car headed south crossed into the northbound lane and slammed into 10 of the 12 motorcycles.

One motorcyclist died at the scene. Three men were critically injured; one of them died later of his injuries sustained in the horrific crash.

One of the motorcyclists nearly died several times on his way to a hospital.

A doctor would later recall the multiple life-saving procedures the motorcyclist underwent as he was being flown to the facility: "He underwent CPR on the helicopter," the doctor said. "He was shocked on the way from the helicopter to the trauma room. He was shocked in the hallway. He was shocked in the room. Things were not looking good, but he pulled it out."
