Illinois couple victims of fatal motorcycle accident

Every day, thousands of motorcyclists ride alongside cars and trucks on busy highways and suburban streets. The vast majority of these motorcyclists are able to safely enjoy their ride as they commute to their destination.

An Illinois woman, who suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident that claimed the life of her husband two months prior, has now died.
