A fatal Rockford motorcycle crash occurred on the morning of April 3, 2019. This fatal Rockford motorcycle crash happened shortly before 8:00 a.m. in the 2400 block of South Alpine Road in Rockford.
According to the April 3, 2019 wifr.com article titled “Update: Motorcyclist dies after accident on Alpine” this fatal Rockford motorcycle crash happened after a loss of motorcycle control. The reason for this loss of control does not appear to be publicly disclosed at this time.
As discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page, a rider can lose control of the bike for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons are due to the actions of the motorcyclist, such as speeding, reckless driving or rider error. However, many other factors beyond the control of the rider can lead to a loss of control. These factors can include gravel on the roadway or some other type of road hazard that leads to a loss of motorcycle stability resulting a crash.
Furthermore, as discussed on the “Early-Season Motorcycle Riding Safety Issues” page, for many reasons riding a motorcycle early in the riding season can heighten the level of accident risk.
One risk is that of motorists “not seeing” motorcycles, which can be particularly problematical early in the riding season. Motorists “not seeing” motorcycles continues to be a substantial problem with regard to motorcycle riding safety. As seen in many Illinois motorcycle accidents discussed on this site, this problem has led to many collisions that have resulted in the motorcyclist being seriously injured. Many of these motorcycle accident injuries have led to the death of the motorcycle rider, either at the accident scene or some time after the accident.
