Charges were filed Wednesday against an Oshkosh man accused of driving under the influence and hitting a motorcycle, seriously hurting two people.

Justin Linzmeyer, 31, was charged with two counts each of hit-and-run involving great bodily harm and injury by intoxicated use of a vehicle for the October 13 crash that sent two people to the hospital.

Around 7:05 a.m. that day, police responded to a crash involving a SUV and a motorcycle at Ohio St. and W. 6th Ave in Oshkosh.

Linzmeyer was allegedly driving the SUV and made a left turn westbound on W. 6th Ave, according to officers. He turned in front of a motorcycle, which was driving south on Ohio St, police said.

The vehicles collided and Linzmeyer and his passenger left the scene, according to officers.

The passenger, a 29-year-old man from Oshkosh, was later arrested for a probation hold.

A 32-year-old man from Appleton, who was driving the motorcycle, and a 27-year-old woman from Oshkosh, who was a passenger, were taken to the hospital with severe injuries.

We have not received an update on their conditions.

Linzmeyer is being held on a $50,000 cash bond. He must contain absolute sobriety.
