RHINELANDER - Rhinelander police need your help with a hit and run accident from this evening.
A minivan hit a motorcycle around 5:30 this evening.
The motorcyclist told our reporter the minivan hit him.
The accident happened right outside of the Paper Mill on Davenport and Pelican street.
The motorcyclist had a few scratches on his back, but was ok.
He refused to go to the hospital.
Rhinelander police says video from surveillance cameras at the mill will help find the driver of the minivan.
"The Paper Mill has some exterior video to monitor Davenport street traffic. So it will give us better picture and video of what exactly happened in the accident," said Rhinelander police sergeant, Kurt Helke.
"But at this time we are looking for that second vehicle. So we could talk to the driver. The quicker they would cooperate and identify themselves to police would prevent further additional charges."
Police don't know how the accident happened.
They think the video will help them get the license plate number.
"That's another thing we're going to have to look at the video image to see if we can enhance it to get the detail of the license plate," Helke said.
"Right now we have a pretty good idea of the make and model of the vehicle. And we'll gather further details as we progress."
Police say there will be additional charges if the crime doesn't come forward.
RHINELANDER - You need to really get outside into nature to truly appreciate it. That's what Oneida County hopes you experience walking through its new pollinator garden behind the courthouse, which is close to completion.
Workers from Hanson's Garden Village laid out the key part to getting you into that garden along Baird Avenue on Tuesday. The gravel walkway allows water to drain into the soil, preventing runoff into the street.
A $1,500 Wisconsin Public Service Foundation grant paid for almost all of the walkway, which will lead through the garden to a picnic table. The walkway will be ADA-accessible, which will allow people with wheelchairs, strollers, and walkers to navigate the garden.
