Carl Robello, 24, of Glenview, died in mid-June after sustaining severe injuries resulting from a gruesome motorcycle crash in Morton Grove, according to the Chicago Tribune. Robello was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge after he was found by a utility pole, according to the Tribune, and died from internal injuries that night. "Witnesses saw the man riding the motorcycle at high speed east on Golf Road before he lost control and struck a curb," Morton Grove Police Commander Paul Yaras told the Tribune. "The motorcycle, which kept running after it struck the curb, was found a few blocks away from Robello." Man Dies in Grisly Motorcycle Crash IMAGE The motorcyclist had been drinking heavily when the crash occurred and didn't appear to be wearing a helmet, according to the Tribune. Yaras told the paper that it'd been a couple of years since he'd seen a motorcycle accident in that area, and that it was the worst crash he'd ever seen in his 18-year career with the Morton Grove Police Department. Robello's blood alcohol level after the crash was 2.5 times the legal limit, and he was likely thrown from the cycle at a high speed. According to Center for Disease Control statistics, "motorcycles are the most dangerous type of motor vehicle to drive… involved in fatal crashes at a rate of 35.0 per 100 million miles of travel, compared with a rate of 1.7 per 100 million miles of travel for passenger cars." While motorcycle mortality rates decline steadily from the 1980s to the 1990s, the motorcycle mortality rate increased from 0.9 in 1993 to 1.2 in 2003. From 1983 to 2003, however, "the overall proportion of both motorcycle and passenger-car drivers dying in crashes who were alcohol impaired declined." In 2003, the "proportion of fatally injured drivers with alcohol impairment was consistently lower among motorcycle drivers than among passenger-car drivers at each age through age 34 years," according to the CDC. If you or someone you know has been injured in a crash that wasn't your fault, you may be eligible for compensation. Don't go through it alone.
