A man was killed in a motorcycle crash Sunday evening in north suburban Antioch.

Shortly before 8 p.m., a 57-year-old man was driving the motorcycle south on Nelson Road and did not stop at the intersection with North Avenue, according to a statement from Antioch police.

The bike crossed over North, struck a tree and the driver was thrown from the vehicle, police said.

The man, identified as Russell Schultz, was taken to Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he was pronounced dead, according to police and Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper. He lived in unincorporated Antioch.

Schultz apparently died from multiple traumatic injuries due to the crash, but toxicology results were pending Tuesday afternoon, Cooper said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation by the Antioch Police Department and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team.
