On September 5, 2021, at approximately 5:30 p.m., Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a motorcycle crash with injuries on Rollins Road west of Route 45, in Avon Township. Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle in the ditch line south of the roadway. Deputies located the rider of the motorcycle, a 19-year-old man of Round Lake Beach, unconscious and not breathing. Sheriff’s deputies attempted life-saving measures until paramedics arrived. The driver succumbed to his injuries and was subsequently pronounced deceased at the scene.
Preliminary investigation shows the driver of the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Rollins Road, west of Route 45. The driver was in the inside lane and made a lane change to the outside lane, but drove slightly off the roadway onto the gravel shoulder. This caused the driver to lose control and crash into the ditch line. The driver was thrown from the motorcycle and sustained major injuries.
Sheriff’s accident investigators responded and continue investigating. The Lake County Coroner’s Office responded and an autopsy is being scheduled.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Technical Crash Investigations Unit and Lake County Coroner’s Office.
