Success - Article sent! close

All lanes of the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway near Hampshire had to be shut down Friday morning to allow a helicopter land so an injured motorcyclist could be transported to a hospital.

The crash occurred just before 10 a.m. near the Marengo-Hampshire toll plaza on I-90. A car stopped abruptly, causing the motorcyclist to adjust his position, lose control and hit the road and side wall barrier, according to Illinois State Police.
