The identity was released on Monday, July 5, 2021 for a motorcyclist who died in a crash on southbound Route 53 (IL-53/I-290 EAST) Sunday, July 4, 2021 in the southbound local lanes between Interstate 90 and Golf Road near Schaumburg to the west and Rolling Meadows to the east.
Illinois State Police identified the motorcyclist killed as Nilson Geovani Duarta Ulloa, age 33, of Hoffman Estates.
Ulloa was driving a Yamaha motorcycle about 8:00 p.m. Sunday and hit the driver’s side of a Volvo SUV driven by a woman from Frankfort, Illinois. Ulloa was ejected from his motorcycle and hit a steel guardrail that separates the local lanes from the express lanes. The woman and two dogs that were in the Volvo SUV were not initially reported to have any injuries.
An extended crash investigation with an Illinois State Police Crash Reconstruction Officer continued through the night until about 12:30 a.m. Monday. Fireworks displays spanned the horizon as state troopers worked at the fatal crash scene.
Illinois State Police, and firefighters and paramedics from Schaumburg responded about 8:03 p.m. Sunday, July 4, 2021 to a report of a motorcycle crash with an SUV — possibly a Volvo — just south of the merge ramp from I-90 EAST.
Schaumburg paramedics arrived to find the motorcyclist deceased at the scene about 100 to 200 feet north of Golf Road.
A motorcycle was severely damaged at the scene, and the SUV was further south in the local lanes of southbound Route 53 with minor damage.
Initially all local lanes were blocked on southbound Route 53. The Crash Reconstruction investigation continued beyond midnight. Two ramps were closed during the investigation. The ramp from Algonquin Road to southbound Route 53 was closed, and the ramp from I-90 EAST to southbound IL-53/I-290 EAST was closed.
A second ambulance was assigned to the scene by 8:14 p.m. but was returned before the paramedics with the second ambulance arrived on the scene.
