By Dawn Rhodes Tribune reporter

9:31 p.m. CDT, June 28, 2011
A 29-year-old man was killed after his motorcycle collided with a semi-tractor trailer in Schaumburg Tuesday afternoon, according to police officials.

The crash occurred at 4:21 p.m. at Irving Park Road and Mitchell Boulevard, according to Schaumburg Police news release. The 18-wheeler was traveling east on Irving Park Road and began making a left turn onto northbound Mitchell Boulevard, police said, citing preliminary information. The motorcycle, traveling west on Irving Park, then struck the semi in the intersection, according to police.

The motorcyclist was taken to Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village, where he later died. Authorities were not releasing his name, pending notification of his family.

No traffic citations were issued to the 48-year-old truck driver from Batavia and the investigation was on-going as of Tuesday evening, police said.

A stretch of Irving Park Road between Roselle Road and Wright Boulevard was closed after the crash but re-opened at 8:50 p.m.

Unfortunately I pulled up to this intersection about 30 seconds after the accident. It felt like it took forever for emergency vehicles to show up. I didn't get too close but the guy was barely breathing when the paramedics showed. He had a helmet on but no other gear.

RIP

That's right where I work, and I must have left literally seconds b4 this happened. Rip. That is a bad intersection. Truckers always turning down Mitchell and miss hitting cars making that turn because that intersection isn't wide enough. But what I don't understand is how the bike rider wasn't able to stop in time. If it happened exactly as the cops describe, the truck has his own left turn lane, and u can see clearly up the small hill going up, and the biker would be able to see clearly going down the hill. RIP to the rider.

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!

wow, I heard about this last night. Its about 500ft from where I'm sitting right now. And yes that is kinda strange, I did 100 plus on that stretch before and I think it's pretty visable once you come over the hill.

The firedepartment is just down the road on wright, maybe 3min away, when I had my accidents at work it also felt like forever, especially if you trying to reanimate someone...

RIP.

I wasn't there and I don't have all the infoormation but...this sure sounds like a classic right of way violation/left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle scenario to me.
I hope his family and friends insist on a full investigation and charges if warranted.
Rest in Peace and Godspeed.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

RIP and with traveling for work it is my opinon that truck drivers have started to forget the rules of the road and have just gone into a laws of gross tonage mentality.

Not saying that was what happened here, just saying in general.

Just an input from what that scene looks like... ther are no visable brakemarks from the bike?! the bike hit the trailer of the truck at there rear tires?! at that point the rear tires were close to be off the road, which again is a ? why did the biker not move a bit to the left instead of the right?

If one hit the back end of a truck that was making a left turn, then someone on two wheels wasn't paying that much attention (or got target fixated), sad to say.

Yes, sad to say but yes!
Paying attention is important no matter where you ride. and if you end up under the rear of a turning truck with a speedlimit of 35 ( or maybe 45... not sure...) and visability far down the road, something is fishy...

Coming out of Roselle, into Schaumburg, in the direction the biker was "supposably" going, the speed limit is 35mph, but doesn't change to 45mph u til AFTER where the trucker and the biker made contact.

Something strange is up with all of this. It is a single, no passing lane in both directions, with only eastbound traffic having a turn lane to go down Mitchell. Which is what the trucker obviously used. But yes, if the rider ended going up UNDER the rear trailer wheels ONLY, it's possible the rider failed to leave room for the trucker to complete his turn. I look at Irving from my work and "speed Inc" is right there by me, and I know for a fact that people fly down irvng all the time. And by fly, I mean 55mph is a minimum when they r on bikes, or leaving speed Inc.

Still, a rider has passed away. RIP

...plus my gf was with me saying "omg slow down, slow down" and I was thinking "Lose annoying squalk box in passenger seat, afford more mods and have less weight in the car and on the back of the bike"...so i dumped her and I'm single again as usual...HERE KITTY KITTY!!!
