Woman Sentenced in Motorcycle Accident

March 22, 2017
On Thursday, 34-year-old Leena Ultsch was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and failing to render help or report a death. The charges stem from an auto accident involving a motorcycle during the very early hours on Wednesday near Antioch, Illinois. According to authorities, 50-year-old Gregory Boyes and his motorcycle were discovered along Illinois Route 173 at approximately 4 a.m. Investigators initially believed he had lost control of the 2007 Suzuki when he was driving around a curve. He was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. During the investigation, police realized another vehicle was also involved in the accident and around 10 a.m. Ultsch called the police and confessed to her involvement. The bail has been set at $250,000, and the accident is still under investigation. 
Drivers involved in auto accidents are required to remain at the scene of the accident and provide personal and insurance information. In the event that a driver leaves the scene of an accident, the accident is classified as a hit and run accident. Drivers who disobey traffic laws will face criminal punishment and may also be held accountable for their actions if an auto accident case is filed. If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a hit and run accident, it is important to consult an experienced Illinois car accident attorney.
