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

View in a larger map showing location of fatal motorcycle crash at Dundee Road and Quentin Road [LOCATION OF MOTORCYCLE MARKER IS NOT PRECISE].

Husband and wife Michael Kelm, 65, and Susan Kelm, 54, of Schaumburg, Illinois were riding a motorcycle and were fatally injured when they were involved in a collision with a car near a gas station on the southwest corner of the intersection.

Michael Kelm was pronounced dead just before 2:30 p.m. and Susan Kelm was pronounced dead about 3:45 p.m. at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, Illinois.

Palatine Fire Department firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:45 a.m. Labor Day to a car vs. motorcycle accident with at least three victims injured at the intersection of Dundee Road and Quentin Road in Palatine. Two patients were reported to be unconscious at the scene and transported to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. Palatine Fire Department called three ambulances to the scene. The driver of the car was treated and released from a local hospital.

Medical transport by helicopter or Flight for Life was probably not used because the victims were immediately accessible for transport. Flight for Life is more likely called for victims that are trapped in a vehicle in situations where the helicopter can be waiting in a landing zone by the time the victim is removed from the wrecked vehicle. Since the paramedics were able to access the victims immediately, it is assumed that the paramedic rescue ambulance from Palatine Fire Department would be well on its way to the hospital in light traffic for a Monday — before the helicopter could reach a landing zone near the accident. It is unknown if other reasons factored against using a medical transport helicopter.

Cook County Sheriff’s deputies were apparently the primary law enforcement officers acting in their jurisdiction. A 61-year-old driver was ticketed for failure to yield as she was pulling out of the gas station driveway and struck the motorcycle.
