Upon arrival, officers applied a tourniquet to the motorcyclist's leg and a good Samaritan, who reportedly had prior military service, provided first aid until the South Shore Fire Department arrived and took the motorcyclist to the hospital.

The other vehicle involved, police said, was an SUV. It was determined that the SUV had bad headlights – the faulty equipment was deemed the cause of the crash. The driver was headed north on Sheridan when the motorcyclist tried to turn onto Larson in front of the SUV.
