2 People Die in Separate Motorcycle Crashes on Lake Shore Drive

Two separate motorcycle crashes on the North Side stretch of Lake Shore Drive in Chicago left two people dead. The first occurred near Belmont Avenue when a car and motorcycle collided. The 34 year old man was pronounced dead approximately 40 minutes after the crash. About three hours later, a motorcycle traveling in the southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive near Oak Street scraped the center median which caused the female passenger to be ejected from the bike and thrown into the northbound lanes. Preliminary information indicated that another vehicle may have been involved in the crash, but that car’s role is not immediately known. The 33 year old woman died from injuries she suffered during the crash and was pronounced dead shortly after the crash. The male driver of the motorcycle suffered minor personal injuries and was treated and released. He was not cited for the crash. While both motorcycle crashes are being investigated, no lawsuits have been filed. To read the full story, click here.
