Police, firefighters and paramedics from Countryside Fire Protection District responded about 8:35 a.m. Saturday, May 22, 2021 to a report of a motorcycle crash into a car on Route 83 at Endwood Drive, Long Grove.




Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies arrived and discovered crash near the intersection of Route 83 and Endwood Drive — just south of Westmoreland Drive in Long Grove near Vernon Hills. The operator of the motorcycle, a 25-year-old male of Hawthorn Woods, had been ejected in the crash and sustained significant injuries. The motorcyclist was wearing a helmet.

He was transported by Countryside FPD paramedics to Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville via ambulance with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Honda sustained minor injuries, but was not transported to the hospital.




Preliminary investigation shows the motorcycle operator was traveling northbound on Route 83 at a high rate of speed. Witnesses reported the operator was driving recklessly and weaving in and out of traffic. As the operator approached Endwood Drive, he struck the rear-end of a northbound Honda Accord, driven by a 72-year-old, man of Prospect Heights.

Citations for the operator of the motorcycle are pending.
