Motorcycle Accident On Chicago’s Lake Shore Drive Injures Father And Son

A motorcycle accident Saturday, May 26, on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago has injured a father and son.

The father and son, from Norridge, each lost control of their motorcycles on LSD in the Edgewater area, near West Hollywood.  According to police, both have been cited for DUI.

The crashes happened at approximately 3:43 p.m., as the pair were traveling northbound.  The father, for an unknown reason, first lost control of his motorcycle, and was ejected.  The bike, however, continued on its own for more than a block, until it hit a taxicab stopped at the intersection of Sheridan and Hollywood.  The father suffered various injuries including those to the head and back, according to police.

At approximately the same time, the son lost control of his motorcycle, and hit a concrete wall.  He was thrown over the wall, landing in a grassy area.  He suffered injuries to his right leg and other areas.

Both the father and son were taken in critical condition to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition.
