was a 58-year-old Caseyville man who died at the scene of the crash. The
passenger was a 55-year-old Caseyville woman who was seriously hurt and
transported by helicopter to a hospital where she remains in a critical
state. The 24-year-old driver of the truck was uninjured, and police say
he was cited for failing to yield at an intersection. The accident is
still under investigation, and northbound Illinois Route 100 was closed

Motorcycle accidents can have devastating consequences. Due to their lack
of safety features, motorcycle accidents are often more serious than the
average auto accident. Even a minor motorcycle accident can lead to serious
injuries and may result in a lifetime of pain or disability. When a person
is hurt in a motorcycle accident caused by a negligent or distracted driver,
the victim is entitled to seek compensation for their damages.
