A 51-year-old man is dead after being thrown from his motorcycle on North Road, just south of Beebe Road on November 17.
The crash occurred just after noon. Witnesses say Mark S. Myers was going north on North Road when he appeared to apply the brakes and his motorcycle started to skid. He then corrected and veered off of the roadway, when the bike got caught in the gravel shoulder. Myers was then thrown from the motorcycle.
Myers was transported to OSF Saint Anthony Hospital in Rockford. The Winnebago County Coroner's Office later confirmed that Myers died as a result of the crash.
