McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Sandra Rogers said that a 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Crystal Lake Avenue and had a green light.

An unknown vehicle traveling westbound on Crystal Lake Avenue failed to yield to the motorcycle and turned southbound onto Pingree Road in front of the motorcycle.
