Motorcycle and SUV collide, then the SUV leaves the scene

A motorcycle and a Cadillac Escalade, a full-size SUV, ran into each other in the northbound lanes of I-294. According to the Illinois State Police Department, the black SUV then fled from the crash site.

The accident happened back on Oct. 10, and it took place right around 3:18 p.m. The wreck was right by milepost 10.75.

Police also said that the motorcycle flipped during the accident, and that the two people who were riding on it at the time were seriously injured. First responders came to the scene and transported those individuals to Christ Hospital for treatment.

Officials investigated the accident right away, even closing down two lanes of the road for a little over two hours. By about 5:30, they concluded the investigation and the cleanup, and the lanes were opened back up again.

As of now, the police have not told the public who was responsible for the accident or exactly how it happened. They have also not released any word on whether or not they were able to catch the driver of the SUV that fled from the scene, at least not in the immediate reports coming out of the Chicago area.

Motorcycle riders are at a high risk of serious injuries when they're involved in interstate crashes -- even when they are wearing all of the proper safety gear -- and these serious injuries can lead to high medical costs and permanent damage. Therefore, anyone who has been hurt in such a crash needs to look into his or her rights to seek financial compensation from the parties who were at fault.
