Keep the Rubber Side Down

Motorcycle Crash


Early this afternoon a motorcycle bit the dust (well, asphalt) in Woodstock in the 400 block of Lake Avenue. Lake Avenue is, as you might know, the road on the south side of the Metra tracks, whereas Lake Street is the road on the north side of the tracks.

At the time of this picture, about 12:05PM, the motorcycle was down in the lane headed toward the Square, and the operator was sitting on the curb. Two Woodstock officers were on the scene, and the paramedics and wrecker had not yet arrived.

Short skid marks in the lane indicated the operator had tried to stop. It is unknown (to me) whether the automobile in the picture was involved or if the driver just stopped to render aid.

Let's hope all are okay.

IDOT has begun displaying large yellow banners with the letters, START SEEING MOTORCYCLES. Do watch for them, as one might just be behind the vehicle coming toward you that you do see.

Generally, in the car vs. motorcycle contest, the motorcyclist comes in second.
