The driver who fled the scene after striking a motorcyclist last June pleaded not guilty of hit-and-run charge, wisconsinrapidstribune.com reported on September 2.

According to reports, Oscar Balderas fled from the accident scene on June 29 after hitting motorcyclist identified as James Luedtke. Documents showed that Balderas was pulling out from a driveway in Marshfield when the accident occurred. Witnesses recounted Balderas got out from his vehicle, saw Luedtke pinned, and then got back into his truck and left. Balderas argued that he did see Luedtke, but he was not the one that struck him. He claims that he left because there were plenty of people to help the injured motorcyclist. Luedtke reportedly broke two bones in his leg as a result of the accident.
