Glencoe, IL (August 26, 2023) – An accident involving an Amazon truck sent a bicyclist to a local hospital with injuries.
According to reports from law enforcement, a 64-year-old man from Highland Park was riding a bicycle northbound on Sheridan Road. As his vehicle passed the intersection of South Avenue at around 4:15 p.m., it collided with an Amazon Dodge Ram ProMaster vehicle in the bicycle lane.
Officers with the Glencoe Public Safety Department responded to the scene and secured the roadway. The bicyclist was transported to Evanston Hospital for the treatment of critical injuries.
At this time, the incident is being investigated by the North Regional Major Crimes Task Force.
We hope the bicyclist recovers quickly.
Automobile collisions send thousands of people to area hospitals with injuries every year in Illinois. Unfortunately, when commercial vehicles are involved, victims are more likely to suffer injuries that change their lives forever.
Even though we like to believe that other drivers sharing the road have our best interests in mind, this is just not the case. In fact, the vast majority of collisions are caused by drivers who engage in reckless, negligent, and distracted driving.
Although many accidents result in minor injuries and discomfort, tens of thousands of people are forced into area hospitals and have to undergo emergency medical services following their accidents. Some of the most common injuries sustained by auto accident victims in our state include:
