At 1:07 p.m., emergency personnel were dispatched to the scene of the crash in front of the Thornton's gas station in the 2100 block of South Eighth Street (Route 31).

West Dundee Police Sgt. Daniel Haines said a Chevrolet Malibu heading south on Route 31 was turning left onto Marriott Drive near the gas station and hit the motorcycle that was heading north on Route 31.

The man was thrown from the motorcycle and was not wearing a helmet, Haines said.

The man suffered a head injury and fractured legs and was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin, West Dundee Fire Chief Randy Friese said.

"He was pretty banged up, but he was talking to us," Friese said.

The driver, meanwhile, was evaluated at the scene and refused to be transported, authorities said.

The Carpentersville Fire Department assisted West Dundee with the accident.
