Police said the accident happened at about 1 p.m. Tuesday on Illinois Route 41, near Washington Street in the Lake Bluff area.
The motorcyclist was headed north on Route 41 on a Suzuki motorcycle, police said, but failed to fully react to slowing traffic ahead of him. He ran into the rear of an SUV and was thrown forward by the impact. The man slid under the wheels of a semitrailer that was in the lane ahead of the SUV, and he was run over.
