Loss of control motorcycle accidents have been a common occurrence so far in the 2018 Illinois motorcycle riding season. Many of these accidents have been summarized on this site.
There are many reasons why loss of control motorcycle accidents happen. The topic of loss of control motorcycle accidents is further discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page.
As discussed on that page, some loss of control motorcycle accidents are the fault of the motorcyclist, while other crashes are due to factors outside of the motorcyclist’s control.
An excerpt from the above-mentioned page, regarding one cause of motorcycle accidents – excessive speed – especially when going around a curve:
Operating a motorcycle too fast for conditions is often problematical from a control standpoint, and such excess speed is especially perilous when going into a corner. Motorcyclists should be mindful of their speeds, especially when going into a corner. This is especially so when riding on unfamiliar routes, where curves may be much sharper than one might expect.
A Chicago-area accident in which a loss of motorcycle control occurred, leading to a crash during which the motorcyclist was ejected, occurred early Saturday (June 2, 2018) morning in Thornton. The crash is discussed in the June 2, 2018 Chicago Sun-Times article (with accident scene video) titled “Motorcyclist veers off road in Thornton.”
Details on the accident appear limited at this time. According to the article, the motorcycle left the roadway in the area of Ridge Road and Halsted Avenue at approximately 3:00 a.m. according to Thornton officials. The motorcyclist was injured and hospitalized.
