Decatur, located in central Illinois and home to about 72,000 people, has been named one of the country’s “Top 25 Trade Cities” and is home to three railway connections as well as an inland port, making it a prominent transportation hub in the region. While the surrounding area is known for scenic views, farmlands, and smooth roads, motorcyclists should also be mindful of slow-moving trucks, tractors, and farm equipment that can obstruct the road at unexpected times.
Here are some examples of motorcycle accidents in the Decatur area in recent years:
- In April 2014, at the intersection of Oakley and Ravina Park, a pickup truck was attempting to turn left onto Ravina when it was rear-ended by a motorcyclist; witnesses said the motorcyclist had been speeding and swerving around other vehicles just prior to the accident. The motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries.
- In June 2015, on Route 48 near Cundiff Road, an accident occurred around midnight which involved two motorcycles and one vehicle. The accident resulted in two fatalities, both residents of Macon County.
