Yesterday evening, a 12-year old Shawano boy was seriously injured while riding his bicycle along Lark Road in Waukechon.
Joe Yoder was riding his bike just outside of Shawano when he was hit by a truck at 5:25 PM. Emergency crews transported the boy to Shawano Medical Center for critical injuries. He was later airlifted to St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay. Today, medical officials decided to transfer him once more to the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin in Wauwatosa.
Yoder succumbed to his injuries and passed away at 1 AM this morning. Shawano County police are investigating this tragic bicycle accident.
Our sincerest thoughts and prayers are with Yoder's family and friends.
