Racine Motorcycle Accident Victim Identified

Police have identified a man who was killed in a Racine motorcycle accident Thursday night.

According to officials with the Racine Police Department, 22 year-old Austen A. Shampo, of Racine, was killed in a motorcycle accident in the northbound lanes of Highway 31 shortly after 9:30 p.m. Thursday. A preliminary investigation determined Shampo was driving north on U.S. 31 when his motorcycle collided with a 2005 Pontiac G6 that had begun to cross the highway.

According to Lieutenant Charles Weitzel, the Pontiac was driven by 24 year-old Chakeia M. McCrackin.

Shampo was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision. He was not wearing a helmet, according to a press release issued Friday.

The Racine Police Department continues to investigate the accident. Weitzel indicated the motorcycle’s speed contributed to the cause of the accident.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victim’s family and friends during this difficult time.
