Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found a motorcyclist deceased at the scene.

Witnesses reported the motorcyclist was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash.

Preliminary investigation shows a Suzuki motorcycle, driven by a 31-year-old man of Great Lakes, was traveling northbound on Route 41. Traffic in front of the motorcycle began to slow, however the operator of the motorcycle was unable to slow in time.

The semi-trailer truck was driven by a 59-year-old man of Mundelein, who was traveling in front of the Chevrolet. The motorcyclist was run over by the wheels of the trailer.

The drivers of the Chevrolet and Peterbilt were uninjured.
