Sean Meyer, Justine Randall Killed on Southbound Milwaukee Ave, South of Dundee Rd

Sean Meyer, 26, and Justine Randall, 23, were killed when the driver of the motorcycle lost control on southbound Milwaukee Avenue at Center Avenue. Buffalo Grove police reported a motorcycle took off on them at Dundee Road and Milwaukee Avenue and cautioned that Wheeling police be on the lookout for the motorcycle. Seconds later, Buffalo Grove police still submitting information to dispatch, and about to estimate the speed of the motorcycle, were interrupted mid-sentence as they apparently witnessed the motorcycle crash. The police reported they saw headlights from the motorcycle up in the air. They believed the motorcycle had crashed off in the distance. It did not appear that Buffalo Grove police were in pursuit of the motorcycle prior to the crash or at the time of the crash.

Buffalo Grove police pulled up to the scene of the crashed motorcycle and found a male and female unresponsive at the crash scene. Wheeling police arrived in their jurisdiction and immediately requested an Accident Investigation Team, as it appeared both victims had been killed in the crash. Justine Randall was dead on the scene; Sean Meyer, apparently the driver, was pronounced dead at Glenbrook Hospital at about 4:00 a.m. Sunday.

Wheeling police were investigating the registration on the motorcycle. Justine Randall resided in the 200 block of Inverrary Lane in Deerfield. Sean Meyer resided in the 500 block of South Milwaukee Avenue in Wheeling, about one-half mile from the crash scene.

Southbound Milwaukee Avenue was blocked for an extended period while the Accident Investigation Team worked at the scene. The Wheeling Police Department Crash Investigation Unit and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team were at the scene.

  1. Bufflao Grove Police are way to agressive in there traffic stops. They pull over 70% of the vehicles traveling through there town after 1:00 am. Drive down any major road at that hour and you will pass a squad car every .5 miles.

    I was pulled over for going 2 miles per hour over the speed limit, I know this because the officer told me.

    The State Police and the Attorney General should investigate.

  2. Never could understand why Bufflao Grove Police pull cars over in the Village of Wheeling.

    This happens every night at Milwaukee Ave. and Wolf Rd. or Lake Cook and Portwine.

    There will be two Bufflao Grove police cars with no Wheeling police officers present.

    I always thought one town had to request permission when performing a traffic stop in a neighboring town.

    and when a arrest is made or ticket is issued it has to be completed by the village where the offender is at the time of the arrest.

  3. I smell a wrongful death lawsuit here.

    First Bufflao Grove police say on record that there department was not in persuit.

    Then they say there officer seen the accident happen.

    How can that be if the motocycle was traveling 100 miles per hour and 2 miles from the BG village limits.

    At no time was Wheeling in persuit matter of fact Wheeling didnt know about it until after the accident.

  4. The only wrongful death in this case was committed by the driver of the motorcycle, who killed an innocent passenger and himself by his own actions. Motorcycle drivers take off on police often. While police may follow initially, in a few seconds they decide its not worth the risk to the driver, bystanders and others and decide not to chase. One of the posters has exaggerated the distance from Buffalo Grove, which has jurisdiction near Lake Cook Road and Milwaukee Avenue, about one mile away — not two miles. By the way, at 100 mph, which many of these bikers reach or exceed, it only takes about 36 seconds to get from Lake Cook Road to Dundee Road on Milwaukee Avenue. That’s about how long it takes for a police officer to give the location, the description of the offender and the direction of travel.
