Lake County Sheriff’s Traffic Crash Investigators are investigating a motorcycle crash involving a rear-end crash with a pickup truck that occurred Sunday evening in Port Barrington.

Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded about 7:25 p.m. Sunday, May 5, 2024 to a report of a vehicle crash involving a motorcycle at West Roberts Road and Center Street, Port Barrington. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and found a motorcycle rider with critical injuries.

Lake County Sheriff’s deputies on arrival discovered that the operator of a BMW motorcycle, a 41-year-old man of Lake Zurich, was thrown from the motorcycle after crashing with a Chevrolet Silverado. The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet, and sustained critical injuries, including a fractured neck and severe head injuries. The driver of the BMW motorcycle was transported to an area hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado was uninjured. The driver of the other motorcycle, who was traveling with the driver of the BMW motorcycle, did not stop at the crash scene.

Preliminary investigation shows the driver of a 2012 BMW motorcycle was riding alongside another motorcycle, and both motorcyclists were driving recklessly. Allegedly, both motorcycle drivers were traveling eastbound on Roberts Road and were weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed, illegally passing other vehicles traveling eastbound. As the riders continued eastbound, the driver of the BMW motorcycle went into the westbound lanes to pass a group of motorcycles who were also traveling eastbound. When he returned to the eastbound lanes, he struck the rear of an eastbound Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 47-year-old man of Wauconda.

The investigation continues by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Team.
