A Mundelein man died after he suffered critical injuries when his motorcycle struck a median and crashed on the north side of Chicago, authorities said.
The Chicago Police Department and Chicago Fire Department responded around 9:15 p.m. Thursday to the 7700 block of North Sheridan Road for a traffic crash with injuries.
Officers arrived to find a single-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle.
Police officials said the male victim was unresponsive on the ground.
An investigation showed the man was operating his motorcycle southbound on Sheridan Road in the city’s Rogers Park neighborhood.
The motorcycle struck the center median and crashed along the curve in the roadway near Eastlake Terrace.
Paramedics transported the man to Ascension Saint Francis in Evanston where he was pronounced dead, police officials said.
No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which is being investigated by Chicago Police Area Three detectives.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said the victim was a 34-year-old from Mundelein.
An autopsy performed Friday showed he died from multiple blunt force injuries from the crash. The death was ruled an accident.
The medical examiner’s office has not yet released the man’s name.
