Springfield, our state’s capital, is located in central Illinois and home to about 117,000 people with over 211,000 in the metro area. It is also home to Abraham Lincoln’s presidential library, museum, and former home, making it a popular tourist destination in the state. The median age in Springfield is about 37 years old, and many motorcyclists in the area enjoy a famous 140-mile route known as the “Ultimate Scenic Rivers Route.”
Here are some examples of motorcycle accidents in the Springfield area in recent years:
- In July 2014, on Interstate 55 north of Stevenson Drive, a 48 year-old motorcyclist lost control of the motorcycle, causing it to skid on the highway’s left shoulder. He succumbed to his injuries at the scene, while his 35 year-old female passenger succumbed to her injuries after being transported to Memorial Medical Center.
- In June 2015, a motorcyclist and passenger on Highway 72 just west of Springfield lost control of their Harley Davidson motorcycle and veered off the highway, eventually striking a tree; both suffered severe injuries in the accident.
