A Carpentersville man injured in a September motorcycle crash has died.
Robert Conrad, 69, of the 2300 block of Woodside Drive, died at 8:06 p.m. Tuesday at Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
On Sept. 14, Conrad was riding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle eastbound in the 7700 block of Miller Road in Carpentersville, near the entrance/exit driveways for the Menards and Woodman’s stores, when he thought a vehicle was going to pull out in front of him and he put on the brakes, he told authorities after the accident.
Conrad said the brakes locked up and that when the motorcycle stopped, he fell off it, authorities said.
He was wearing a helmet at the time, authorities said.
Police said there was no evidence of any vehicle pulling out onto Miller Road from Woodman’s.
An officer who worked at the scene said Conrad was walking and talking normally but was transported to a local hospital.
