Motorcyclist dies after Woodstock crash

A 69-year-old Genoa man died after a car versus motorcycle crash Saturday morning in Woodstock.

At 10:42 a.m. Saturday, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and Woodstock Township Fire/Rescue District responded to a crash involving a 2008 Toyota Corolla and a 2018 Harley-Davidson motorcycle.

The vehicles had crashed on Illinois Route 176 west of Dean Street in unincorporated Woodstock.

An on-scene investigation indicated that the Toyota had been pulling off to the north side of the roadway to turn around.

According to the sheriff's office, the Harley Davidson drove to the north of the Toyota for unknown reasons, and struck the rear passenger side of the Toyota, causing the rider to be ejected from the motorcycle.

The motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet.

He was taken to Northwestern Hospital in Huntley, where he was later pronounced deceased.

The woman driving the car, a 31-year-old from Lisle, did not suffer any injuries.

That area of the roadway is currently closed for the investigation, according to the sheriff's office.

An investigation into the crash is being conducted by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Major Crash Investigation Unit.
