A Janesville man suffered life-threatening injuries after a motorcycle accident.

Crews were dispatched to East County Highway M near the City of Milton around 9:00 p.m. Thursday.

Upon arrival, deputies found a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle in the north ditch approximately 20 feet off the road. The driver, 49-year-old Bart Schmidt, was ejected off the motorcycle and suffered serious injuries to his head and face.

Investigators say he took a sharp turn near a curve when he was ejected, he was not wearing a helmet and alcohol was a factor in the crash.

Schmidt was arrested for operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicants.

The accident remains under investigation.
