A motorcyclist was killed and two others were injured after a crash involving a motorcycle and a car near Marengo Saturday evening, officials said.

The Marengo Fire and Rescue Districts and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 7:15 p.m. Saturday to Route 176 and Franklinville Road in unincorporated Marengo.

Marengo Fire and Rescue Districts Communications Specialist Alex Vucha said crews received a report of a two-vehicle collision with injuries.

Firefighters and paramedics arrived to find a BMW sedan and a motorcycle involved.

The incident appeared to be a head-on crash between the two vehicles.

Two people who were in the BMW were evaluated and transported by ambulance to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Huntley.
