Volo man dies in Fox Lake motorcycle crash

Single-vehicle crash occurred Tuesday night

FOX LAKE – A Volo man died Tuesday night in a motorcycle crash, police said Wednesday.

The single-vehicle crash occurred about 6:15 p.m. Tuesday on Frontage Road on the west side of Route 12, near Big Hollow Road in Fox Lake, according to a news release from Fox Lake police.

Spurgeon D. Dyke, 62, died in the crash. Preliminary autopsy results indicated that he died from multiple traumatic injuries as a result of the crash. Toxicology results are pending, Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper said.

Dyke was driving south, and as he approached the curve near Big Hollow Road, he crossed the road and hit a guardrail.

He was ejected from a 2013 Harley-Davidson and suffered fatal injuries, police said.

The Fox Lake Police Department, the Lake County coroner and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team are investigating the crash.

Big Hollow Road west of Route 12 and Frontage Road was closed for about three hours Tuesday as an initial investigation took place.

Witnesses or anyone with information are asked to call the Fox Lake Police Department at 847-587-3100.
