Ms. Hansen was thrown from her motorcycle upon impact with the tractor-trailer. Despite wearing a helmet and safety gear, Hansen was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident from her severe injuries. The driver of the truck was uninjured in the crash and was able to drive away from the scene.
No tickets were issued immediately following the accident and the crash remains under investigation by the Kane County Sheriff’s office.
