Bad Motorcycle accident in Schaumburg

On Roselle Rd in front of the Jewel @ Wise rd I saw the immediate aftermath of a pretty horrific scene. Senior woman in a silver taurus had hit an electrical control box and crumpled the front of the car. Then I saw the bashed motorcycle and the rider, which was about 30' away. Pretty horrific scene.

Anyone know any details of what happened? I didn't stop because there were several people calling 911 on their cellphones already.

Please don't misunderstand me...I am not criticizing...you did what you thought best but, unless you are sure there is another motorcycle rider on scene already doing so, try to always stop and do your best to protect a fellow rider. Learn the basics of accident scene management...don't let anyone touch or move the rider or try to remove the riders helmet unless they are trained emergency personel. Also...if it appears to be a fatality or if the rider is unconscience and unresponsive don't let anyone move anything...the scene of an accident like this is to be treated as a crime scene...the accident investigation division of all local, county and state police can use the cooperation of the public in this area.
Motorcycle Accident Scene Management courses are offered by many motorcycle groups and even by insurance companies, legal services and some public safety departments. They are only a few hours and you'll be amazed at what you learn.
As motorcyclists we need to look out for each other...even if someone appears to be beyond help that may not be the case and even if it is, the help you render in just by keeping the scene undisturbed could be very helpful to the riders family & loved ones.
I'm sure if you are ever the rider down you'd want someone looking out for you!

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!
