Two Wisconsin motorcyclists have been charged in an April crash involving a semitrailer truck.

The crash happened on the 3900 block of Route 12 in Richmond Township near Spring Grove, according to a news release issued Tuesday.

An investigation by the McHenry County sheriff's office found the eastbound truck was hit by a motorcycle driven by 20-year-old Kyle A. Marriner. Marriner had been driving west in the eastbound lane, according to the release.

Marriner was ejected from his motorcycle and was taken by helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. He has since been released.

However, further investigation revealed a second motorcycle, driven by 26-year-old David A. Kelly, had been driving west with Marriner. Kelly did not report the accident or go back to the scene, police said.

Marriner was arrested on charges for driving an uninsured vehicle, having a fraudulent driver's license and improper lane use. He was released on $10,000 bail and will appear in court on June 30.

Kelly was arrested on charges of leaving the scene of an accident and failing to report the crash. He was released on $30,000 bail and will appear in court on July 1.
