Harley Davidson Motorcycle Accident – On Saturday afternoon at 1:48, there was a collision on Route 38 in Geneva that involved two different vehicles. The police say that the victim of the accident was a 70 year old man from Bloomingdale who was riding a 2015 Harley-Davidson motorcycle at the time of the collision.
According to a press statement that was published by the Geneva Police Department, the preliminary inquiry suggests that the Harley Davidson was traveling into the eastbound lanes of Route 38. This information comes from the preliminary investigation. Just to the east of the crossroads where it meets Crissey Avenue, a head on collision occurred between a motorbike and a pickup truck that was heading westbound on Crissey Avenue. The pickup truck was a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado and was traveling in the westbound lanes of Crissey Avenue.
At this point in time, the authorities do not believe that either driving at an excessive speed or having consumed alcohol played a role in what took place during the crash. According to the statements made by the authorities, the rider of the motorcycle was protecting his head with a helmet at the time that the tragedy occurred. According to the press statement, personnel from the Geneva Fire Department carried him to the Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva, where he was later pronounced dead at 2:17 on Saturday afternoon. The hospital is located in Geneva.
The records from the police indicate that in addition to the person from Aurora who was operating the vehicle, there were also three other people present inside the Chevrolet Silverado. At the scene of the accident, medical staff checked on the driver as well as any passengers who were there. According to the notification, the people who were inside the Silverado immediately following the crash did not report suffering any injuries.
According to the police, the family of the rider who was killed in the incident won’t be informed about the tragedy until after the police have made public the identity of the rider who died in the incident. According to the news release, an investigation into the collision is currently being carried out by the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team as well as the Geneva Police Department.
