Algonquin crash sends motorcyclist to hospital

ALGONQUIN – Police are investigating a motorcycle accident that sent a 34-year-old Elgin man to Sherman Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries Tuesday night.

Algonquin police and fire responded to the one-vehicle crash around 9:42 p.m., Tuesday, along Route 31, north of Edgewood Drive. The Elgin man was traveling north when he lost control of his motorcycle and evidently struck a curb, said Deputy Chief John Bucci.

The man, who police say was not wearing a helmet, was transported to Sherman Hospital in Elgin for treatment. Algonquin police did not know the severity of his injuries, Bucci said.

All lanes of Route 31, between Edgewood and La Fox Drive, were shut down for two hours Tuesday night, as investigators examined the scene.

Investigators are typically called to crashes that could involve serious injuries, Bucci said. The investigation is ongoing. Police wouldn't release the identity of the man.
