On 09-01-18 at approximately 6:41 p.m., the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department along with Village of Somers and City of Kenosha Fire and Rescue responded to the intersection of Highway H (88th Avenue) and Highway S (38th Street) for an injury vehicle crash involving a motorcycle.

Investigation on scene revealed that a 2017 Chevrolet sedan was traveling south on Highway H. This vehicle was in the intersection at Highway S with the intent on turning left (east).

At the same time, a 2009 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling north on Highway H with two occupants. According to witnesses, the motorcycle accelerated to ‘beat the light’ as it turned red and struck the sedan in the intersection. Both occupants who were not wearing helmets were ejected from the motorcycle.

The motorcycle operator identified as 33-year-old Joseph Schiavi (Kenosha resident) was transported via Flight for Life helicopter to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee. He later died as a result of the serious injuries he sustained. The female passenger of the motorcycle was identified as 46-year-old Dawn Olson (Kenosha resident) who was transported to area hospital where she died due to her injuries. No injuries were reported to the occupants of the sedan.

The intersection was closed for approximately two hours for investigation purposes.
