CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


Accident investigators work at the scene of a fatal motorcycle car accident.

A Yamaha motorcycle and a Hyundai Sonata automobile were involved in a severe crash just after 4:30 p.m. Sunday at Higgins Road (Route 72) and Mall Drive in Schaumburg, just south of Woodfield Mall and Streets of Woodfield.

Dean Schroeder, 39, of the 1700 block of North Hicks Road in Palatine was killed — his Yamaha motorcycle lying about 180 feet east of the intersection of Mall Drive and Higgins Road. He was transported to Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village where he was pronounced dead about 7:40 p.m.

The silver Hyundai Sonata with New York license plates had severe right-rear passenger and roof damage and was spun ninety degrees and resting on the median of Higgins Road about 60 feet east of the Mall Drive intersection. The Yamaha motorcycle was lying in the eastbound lanes about 120 feet east of the car. Glass and other crash debris were in the intersection of Higgins Road and Mall Drive in the eastbound lanes. The driver of the Hyundai apparently made a U-turn from westbound Higgins to eastbound Higgins Road while both crash vehicles had a green light.

Westbound Higgins Road was blocked for a prolonged period between Meacham and Mall Drive and traffic from Mall Drive south was being routed to westbound Higgins only — no left turns allowed to eastbound Higgins. Schaumburg’s Accident Investigation Unit is on the scene.

The Hyundai driver (a woman aged 30) was apparently transported to the hospital, treated and released to police custody for further investigation after 7:00 p.m. Sunday.  Witnesses to the crash are urged to call the Schaumburg police traffic crash reconstruction team, 847-882-3534.

UPDATE SEP 07 2008 — The motorcycle crash victim Dean Schroeder, 39, was a firefighter/paramedic for 15 years for the Deerfield Fire Department in Deerfield, Illinois.
