An Antioch car-motorcycle collision occurred early Sunday (June 14, 2020) evening. This Antioch car-motorcycle collision happened at the intersection of Route 173 and Deep Lake Road. The motorcyclist was critically injured and hospitalized.

This Antioch car-motorcycle collision is discussed in a variety of media sources, including the June 15, 2020 Lake & McHenry County Scanner article titled “Bystanders, police officer save motorcyclist’s life after crash in Antioch.”

An excerpt:

The Antioch Fire Department and Antioch Police Department responded around 7:05 p.m. Sunday to the intersection of Route 173 and Deep Lake Road for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.

A 2014 Honda Accord, driven by a 17-year-old Antioch woman, and a 2005 Yamaha motorcycle, driven by a 27-year-old Kenosha, Wisconsin man, collided in the intersection.

The driver of the Yamaha was found down on the roadway where he was unresponsive and not breathing.

The first police officer at the scene as well as bystanders rendered lifesaving medical treatment to the motorcyclist. This treatment involved CPR as well as the use of a defibrillator to restore a pulse. The motorcyclist was then taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville for medical treatment. He was in critical condition.

The driver of the Honda was not injured during the collision.

The cause of the collision is under investigation, and as such the party at fault has not been determined. The accident investigation is being conducted by the Antioch Police Department, and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team assisted.

Those who witnessed the crash, or otherwise have information concerning the accident, are asked to contact the Antioch Police Department at 847-395-8585.
