Joliet Motorcycle Accidents
About 30 miles southwest of Chicago is Joliet, the fourth-largest city in Illinois with a population nearing 150,000 people. Joliet is known for its cultural and economic diversity and strong Roman Catholic roots, and is also home to Joliet Junior College, the country’s very first public community college. Nearly one-third of the population is between 25 and 44 years of age, and many motorcyclists enjoy riding out of Joliet via the scenic Route 126, which begins downtown and ultimately ends at Settlers Park near the DuPage River.
Here are some examples of motorcycle accidents in the Joliet area in recent years:
- In September 2014, a 34 year-old male motorcyclist and 24 year-old female passenger both lost their lives when their motorcycle left the roadway and struck a building on Glenwood Avenue near Barney Drive. They each succumbed to their injuries upon being transported to the Presence St. Joseph Medical Center.
- In July 2015, a 27 year-old motorcyclist who had been speeding and not wearing a helmet struck a 56 year-old pedestrian on Route 59 in suburban Plainfield. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene while the motorcyclist succumbed to his injuries upon being transported to the Provena St. Joseph Medical Center.
