Two motorcyclists were injured in a four-vehicle crash Sunday on Interstate 94 near Lincolnshire, officials said.

Just before 12:15 p.m., heavy traffic on westbound I-94 near Route 22 caused a Nissan Armada and a motorcycle to slow down in the far left lane, said Illinois State Police District 15 Master Sgt. Greg Minx. The motorcycle veered to the right but was able to stay in the lane, he said.


A Chevrolet Avalanche traveling behind them did not slow down and struck the back of the motorcycle, causing it to push into the Nissan, Minx said.

The driver of the motorcycle, a 61-year-old man, sustained nonlife-threatening injuries, Minx said. He was taken to Lake Forest Hospital.

While traveling in the same lane, the driver of a second motorcycle dumped his vehicle to the ground to try to avoid the crash, Minx said. His passenger, a 45-year-old woman, also sustained nonlife-threatening injuries and was taken to Highland Park Hospital, he said.

All traffic lanes are open, Minx said, and police are continuing to investigate the crash.
