The Sentra turned in front of the 23-year-old’s Suzuki GSXR 600 motorcycle as it was driving eastbound, according to police.

Motorcycle accidents that occur after another vehicle fails to yield are common. This “failure to yield” has been a leading cause for fatal DuPage County motorcycle accidents over the years. Many fatal Illinois motorcycle accidents that have been summarized on this site have involved a rider who was killed due to the negligence of a motorist.
The Elman Joseph Law Group recently settled a lawsuit in which a motorist was allegedly negligent and hit a motorcyclist. The collision caused the motorcycle rider to suffer various injuries including those to the to the neck, back, and leg. That accident and lawsuit settlement is discussed in the “Will County Motorcycle Accident Lawsuit Settlement Of $209,000” post.
