VIDEO: Hit-and-run crash scene on Rand Road in front of Mug’s Pizza.

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:35 p.m., August 27, 2014 to a major traffic crash in the 800 block of west Rand Rd in Arlington Heights, Illinois. Police have apprehended the driver of a Ford Expedition that was involved in a crash with a motorcycle.

The personal injury crash involved two vehicles. The first vehicle was a 2007 Suzuki Boulevard motorcycle. The second vehicle was a 2004 Ford Expedition. The Suzuki motorcycle was traveling southeast on Rand Rd, approximately 250 feet southeast of Kennicott Ave. The Ford Expedition was originally traveling northwest bound on Rand Rd in the same area, attempting to turn left into a private entrance driveway of a strip mall.

As the Ford Expedition driver made the left turn, the SUV crossed in front of the Suzuki motorcycle. The Suzuki motorcycle, as well as the rider, a 40 year-old male resident of Lake Zurich, Illinois, collided with the passenger side of the Ford Expedition. After the crash, the driver of the Ford Expedition, a 23 year-old male resident of Arlington Heights, Illinois, left the scene of the collision, but was later apprehended in the area of his residence.

Multiple witnesses at the scene were able to give police an effective description of the Ford Expedition vehicle while paramedics rushed the injured motorcyclist to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital.

As a result of the crash, the driver of the Suzuki motorcycle sustained major injuries to his head and spine. As of this morning, Thursday August 28th, 2014, the Suzuki motorcycle driver was still in critical condition at Lutheran General Hospital. The Ford Expedition driver was uninjured.

Arlington Heights Police Department Accident Reconstructionists will be continuing their investigation into the incident. Initial investigative efforts did not reveal any suspicion of intoxication or impairment on the part of either driver. The driver of the Ford Expedition remained in custody because of his failure to remain at the scene of the crash and render aid to the motorcyclist after the crash.
