Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash that killed a Lake County woman Saturday.
The woman, identified by the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department Monday as 47-year-old Lisa Fagan, of Lake County, Ill., was killed when a group of motorcycles crashed around 6:32 p.m. Saturday on the 12400 block of Highway W in Randall.
According to the Kenosha Sheriff’s Department, a group of motorcyclists from Illinois was traveling southbound on Highway W Saturday when the driver of the lead motorcycle, a 2006 Harley Davidson, lost control around a curve and slid into another motorcycle, a 2010 Harley Davidson, on which Fagan was a passenger.
This created a domino effect and another motorcycle, a 1998 Kawasaki, also crashed at the scene.
Though a Flight for Life helicopter was called to the site for Fagan and landed in a nearby parking lot, she was pronounced dead at the scene.
Five other people were transported to Aurora Medical Center in Kenosha following the crash, with the most serious injury being a leg injury, according to statements from Bob Stoll of the Randall Fire Department following the crash Saturday.
The roadway was closed while authorities investigated the scene. On Monday, the sheriff’s department stated that speed appears to have contributed to the crash.
