Police say a man suffered life-threatening injuries after being ejected from his motorcycle during a high-speed crash Wednesday morning in Round Lake Beach.
The Greater Round Lake Fire Protection District and Round Lake Beach Police Department responded around 7:21 a.m. Wednesday to Hainesville Road and Clarendon Drive.
Round Lake Beach Deputy Police Chief Wayne Wilde Jr. said his department was dispatched for a report of a single-vehicle crash with injuries at the intersection, which is just south of Rollins Road.
Officers arrived and located a 1994 Harley Davidson motorcycle in the ditch line with its driver lying next to it, Wilde said.
A preliminary investigation determined the Harley Davidson was traveling northbound on Hainesville Road at a high rate of speed.
The Harley Davidson struck the curb and the driver of the motorcycle was immediately ejected, Wilde said.
The driver, who was not wearing a helmet, sustained life-threatening injuries.
Paramedics transported the man to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
Wilde said he did not have an updated condition on the victim, whose identity is being withheld at this time.
The Round Lake Beach Police Department continues to investigate the crash with the assistance of the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT).
