A Darlington man sustained serious injuries during a motorcycle crash north of Darlington Saturday night, officials said.
Lafayette County sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a two-vehicle crash on Highway 23 in the town of Willow Springs, according to a release.
An initial investigation revealed Mark B. Pattinson, 46, of Darlington, was traveling southbound on a 2012 Harley Davidson motorcycle when a 2013 Dodge Ram being driven by Richard H.

Pattison was transported to Memorial Hospital of Lafayette County with serious injuries, according to the release. Ubersox and his passenger, Kimberlee A. Jacobsen, 57, of Shullsburg, were not injured.
Pattinson’s motorcycle was towed from the crash and Ubersox’s truck was driven from the scene, officials said.
