Glen Ellyn police probe fatal traffic accident
A 49-year-old Lombard man has died from injuries sustained in a traffic accident last Friday in Glen Ellyn, authorities said Tuesday.
The victim, Bruce Watson, was riding his motorcycle about 5:30 p.m. Friday on Main Street just north of St. Charles Road when he collided with a vehicle headed in the opposite direction, according to Glen Ellyn Deputy Police Chief Bill Holmer.
The car's driver was turning left into a strip mall parking lot on the west side of the street when the vehicle struck the motorcyclist, Holmer said.
The Glen Ellyn Volunteer Fire Company responded to the scene and transported Watson to Adventist GlenOaks Hospital in Glendale Heights. He later was transferred to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood where he died over the weekend from injuries related to the crash, Holmer said.
No other injuries were reported.
The driver of the car was interviewed by police. No citations have been issued, but it's possible there may be, Holmer said.
Police are still investigating the crash and ask anyone who may have witnessed it to call (630) 469-1187.
