MARSHFIELD — The name of the 20-year-old Loyal man who died after his moped collided with a pickup truck in Marshfield on Wednesday night has been released. Joseph T. Salisbury was thrown from his moped and struck a building after he collided with the grill of a pickup truck on Wednesday night, according to a report from the Marshfield Police Department. Salisbury was transported to Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital, where died as a result of his injuries.
The pickup truck was driven by Walker A. Shadick, a 24-year-old man from Auburndale.
