A gal got killed yesterday, in the subdivision right behind my place. My gf and I stumbled upon it when we were heading to dinner, only to find the road blocked off by cops and crime scene tape.

Motorcyclist killed in Bolingbrook crash
March 16, 2009
BOLINGBROOK -- A Bolingbrook woman died Sunday after losing control and smashing into a mailbox before being thrown from her motorcycle in Bolingbrook.
Lisa A. Adams, 42, of the 200 block of Bedford Lane, was pronounced dead at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital in Bolingbrook at 5:22 p.m., according to the Will County Coroner's office.
Police received word about the accident about 4:55 p.m. after numerous witnesses called about the motorcycle accident, according to Bolingbrook Police Lt. Ken Teppel.
According to witnesses, Adams was traveling north on Bedford Lane at a high rate of speed when she encountered a curve, lost control and veered off the road before crashing into a mailbox and ultimately falling of her motorcycle, Teppel said.
Although paramedics were sent to the scene, Adams died a short time later at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, Teppel said.
Teppel said speed appears to have been the preliminary cause of the accident and said alcohol was not mentioned in the police report. However, police were awaiting the reports of a toxicological report from the coroner's office.
An autopsy for Adams is scheduled for Monday.
