A motorcyclist was seriously injured Tuesday night when he hit a wall and fell almost twenty feet onto the expressway.
The 23-year-old rider was headed south on the ramp from the outbound Dan Ryan Expressway to the outbound Stevenson Expressway at 10:04 p.m. when he lost control and crashed, State Police said.
Police said he broke both legs after crashing on the feeder ramp and flipping over the rail. He fell about 40 ft. onto a grassy medium, District Chicago Trooper Mark Hall said.
Hall said the man told investigators that he was traveling between 60 to 70 miles per hour when he lost control of his 1999 Honda motorcycle.
The motorcyclist was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
State Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
About 20 minutes prior to the accident, a passenger on a motorcycle traveling on I-94 in Dundee broke her ankle when motorcycle hit another vehicle, Hall said, citing preliminary information.
