An Antioch car-motorcycle collision occurred early Sunday (June 14, 2020) evening. This Antioch car-motorcycle collision happened at the intersection of Route 173 and Deep Lake Road. The motorcyclist was critically injured and hospitalized.
This Antioch car-motorcycle collision is discussed in a variety of media sources, including the June 15, 2020 Lake & McHenry County Scanner article titled “Bystanders, police officer save motorcyclist’s life after crash in Antioch.”
The Antioch Fire Department and Antioch Police Department responded around 7:05 p.m. Sunday to the intersection of Route 173 and Deep Lake Road for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.
A 2014 Honda Accord, driven by a 17-year-old Antioch woman, and a 2005 Yamaha motorcycle, driven by a 27-year-old Kenosha, Wisconsin man, collided in the intersection.
The driver of the Yamaha was found down on the roadway where he was unresponsive and not breathing.
