FROM STNG WIRE REPORTS

An off-duty Chicago Police officer was killed after losing control of her motorcycle Tuesday afternoon on a residential road in south suburban Matteson.

Andria Randolph, 40, was pronounced dead at St. James Hospital and Health Centers in Olympia Fields at 4:04 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Randolph was involved in a motorcycle accident about 3 p.m. near 50 Willow Rd. in Matteson, according to Matteson police Sgt. Michael Black.

She was traveling north on Willow Road when she lost control of her motorcycle, struck a no parking sign and was knocked off her bike, Black said.

The bike came to rest about 200 feet north of where Randolph was discovered lying in a parkway by arriving paramedics, according to Black.

The accident happened in a low-speed-limit residential area and it was not clear how fast Randolph was traveling, Black said Wednesday afternoon.

Randolph, a Chicago Police officer, was off duty at the time, according to police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

The accident remains under investigation by the South Suburban Major Accident Reconstruction Team.

It was not clear how fast she was going? She was 200 feet from her bike though? Sounds like negligence to me especially considering the fact it was in a low speed residential area. I'm from the area and actually live about 1 mile away from where this happened. A motorcycle and a rider don't end up 200 feet away from each other at a low speed.

I hope she didn't suffer. And I wish the best for her family and friends she left behind.

I keep that little black stretchy thing on the back of mine and it seems like it was wrapped around it more this year.
