A motorcyclist was injured in a collision with a pickup truck Thursday (April 26, 2018) night in Chicago’s Mount Greenwood neighborhood. The collision was a “hit & run” accident in which the driver of the pickup truck fled the scene of the accident following the collision.
According to information provided by Chicago Police, the accident happened at approximately 10:40 p.m., as the motorcyclist was riding westbound in the 3300 block of West 111th Street. At that time, a black F-150 pickup truck made a left-hand turn in front of the oncoming motorcycle at Christiana Street. The motorcycle collided with the passenger side of the pickup truck. The driver of the pickup truck then drove away heading west on 110th Street.
The motorcyclist, a Chicago Police dispatcher identified as Mike “Doc” Tracy, was taken to the hospital for treatment of accident injuries, and was reported to be in serious condition.
This Chicago motorcycle accident is being investigated by the Chicago Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Unit.
