Riding a motorcycle carries with it inherent risks that outweigh most other forms of transportation. Motorcycles offer little in the way of external protection, and compared to cars and airplanes, they lack the means of mitigating physical damage once a crash has been initiated. From driving while intoxicated to poorly designed models, motorcycle accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, and often result in significant injury. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert motorcycle accident attorney at 617-787-3700.
At approximately 5:15 AM on July 13, 2018, a man was found dead just outside of Antioch, Illinois, apparently the victim of a motorcycle crash. While one such accident is concerning enough for Lake County, this crash marked the second fatal motorcycle accident of that week. Reports indicate that the driver of the motorcycle was headed out of town when he hit a tree, likely at an extremely high speed.
Similarly, on Wednesday of that same week, a motorcyclist who has recently been identified as Apolonio Patlan of Waukegan, Illinois, crashed and died at a busy intersection. Both crashes are currently being investigated by local and state authorities, and county officials are underway in assessing the current safety landscape for motorists in the area.
