2 die in motorcycle accident involving car crossing center line

May is National Bike Month, and some Illinois counties are taking this opportunity to address bicycle safety on the roads. Most cyclists ride their bikes as safely as most drivers operate their automobiles, but, there are exceptions -- regardless of the means of transport. Even though some bicycle riders may not follow the rules of the road, some automobile and truck drivers are simply negligent or distracted, while others have no consideration for bicycle riders. All too often, such negligence leads to a bicycle accident that can have devastating consequences.

Driver of lawn tractor dies in rear-end car accident

When Illinois drivers come across unconventional vehicles on the road, they may not be prepared for the slow speeds such vehicles are able to travel.

An 18-year-old passenger riding in a pickup truck with a driver who was apparently under the influence of alcohol lost his life in a 2014 drunk driving accident on an icy road in Illinois.
