TOMAHAWK - A woman will recover after a motorcycle fell on her leg Saturday.

A person who saw the two motorcycle accident says the motorcyclists were headed east on highway 8 near County Road A. The accident happened around 4:30 p.m.

The witness says one of the motorcyclists planned on turning into Oaks Pub, but they stopped too soon. That's when the motorcyclists following behind them tried to avoid hitting them, but the bike fell on the passenger.

"I ran right over there, gave them a blanket to put on her so she wasn't shocked. The bike was still laying on her when I got over there," said Good Samaritan Marla Haman. "They pulled the bike off of her. Her ankle was visibly broken."
