A motorcycle driven by Daniel A. Straasburg, 33, of 3407 La Mancha Drive, Janesville, was stopped at a stop sign at State Street and Willard Avenue, Janesville, at 5:15 p.m. Saturday when a car driven by Juan L. Mazon-Avalos, 34, of 108 S. High St., Janesville, came from behind and hit him, according to the accident report.


The SUV continued driving, striking two parked vehicles in the 1900 block of Kellogg Avenue, the report said. The SUV lost its front passenger tire, and Mazon-Avalos was apprehended near Kellogg Avenue and Center Avenue.


Straasburg was transported to Mercy Hospital and was reported in good condition this morning.
