Police say a motorcyclist’s condition has stabilized after being flown to the hospital and another motorcyclist was released after the two crashed and were ejected in Algonquin Saturday afternoon.
The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District and Algonquin Police Department responded around 4:06 p.m. Saturday to Route 31 south of North Main Street.
Algonquin Police Department Detective Sergeant Robert Salazar said officers received a call of a traffic collision involving motorcycles.
A preliminary investigation showed that two motorcycles were traveling southbound on Route 31 south of North Main Street.
One of the motorcycles lost control, ejecting the operator. The second motorcycle then lost control, ejecting that operator as well, Salazar said.
No other vehicles appear to have been involved in the incident.
