An excerpt from the October 2, 2013 Daily Herald article titled “Two injured in I-90 motorcycle crash” :

Illinois State Police Master Sgt. Brian McKinney said two men were injured. They included a 26-year-old passenger and driver Jose Flores Avilla, 30, of Milwaukee, who was issued citations for failure to reduce speed and for a violation of the classification for the motorcycle.

It appears as if one motorcycle struck another from behind.  The rider of the second motorcycle was not injured.

Additional details and possible updates can be seen in a variety of media sources, including the Daily Herald article mentioned above.
