Rockford is Illinois’s third-largest city and home to just over 153,000 people. Located on the Rock River in Winnebago County, Rockford is nicknamed “The Forest City” and known for its economic diversity and roots in manufacturing and transportation. The Rockford Health System and the Swedish American Hospital are among the city’s largest employers. Many motorcyclists enjoy a particular 42-mile route commonly known as the “Rock River Run,” which extends from Rockford to Dixon, and motorcyclists should be especially mindful of wildlife near the roads along the way.
Here are some examples of motorcycle accidents in the Rockford area in recent years:
- In August 2014, east of Rockford, two separate motorcyclists collided head-on and succumbed to their injuries; a female passenger on one of the motorcycles suffered severe injuries and was airlifted to a nearby hospital.
- In September 2014, a 24 year-old motorcyclist took a turn too sharply, resulting in the bike crossing the median and landing in a ditch. The 24 year-old female passenger suffered life-threatening injuries.
