Motorcyclist Killed Near I-57 On-Ramp

A Mokena, Illinois man was killed after he lost control of his motorcycle and crashed near an onramp to Interstate Highway 57 in the south Chicago suburb of Markham. The motorcycle crash occurred early in the morning and the 38-year-old man was riding with another cyclist down 159th Street onto the expressway. The other rider told investigators that he and the man slowed their motorcycles when they saw construction on the highway and he believes the man may have lost control when he was blinded by construction lights. The man’s motorcycle slid on its side into a nearby grassy area. The man was not wearing a helmet and suffered head trauma. He was taken to a nearby hospital and pronounced dead. At this time, no lawsuits have been filed. To read the full story, click here.
