A 79-year-old Mount Prospect man was killed when a car collided with the motorcycle he was riding in Libertyville.
William Thedorf Sr. was riding a Harley-Davidson at Winchester Road and U.S. Route 45 in Libertyville when he was hit by a Volkswagen driven by an 18-year-old Mundelein man about 11:50 p.m. Wednesday, said Libertyville police Sgt. Dennis Meserve.
Thedorf was southbound on Route 45 while the other driver, headed north, waited to turn left onto Winchester while a train was blocking the turn as it passed parallel to Route 45, Meserve said. When the train had cleared, the VW driver turned left, Meserve said.
