A motorcycle accident in Rock County Thursday has left a rural Janesville man battling life-threatening injuries, according to the Rock County Sheriff's Department.

The incident happened just after 9 p.m. Thursday on County Highway M west of N. Kidder Road in Fulton Township, about 3 miles west of Milton.
