EFFINGHAM CO., Ill. – A Shelbyville man was injured in a motorcycle accident this afternoon caused by liquid on the road.

Illinois State Police in District 12 Effingham report that the single-vehicle accident occurred at 1:14 p.m. today, Wednesday, September 11.

Preliminary investigation details indicate that a black 2003 Harley-Davidson motorcycle being operated by Randy L. James, 61 of Shelbyville, had turned northbound onto Illinois Route 128 from Illinois Route 33 in Beecher City.

However, a significant amount of an unknown liquid, possibly fuel, was in the roadway, making it slippery, ISP reported.

As a result, James lost control of the Harley, overturning and coming to a resting point in the roadway.

James was transported via ambulance to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Effingham with unspecified injuries. No citations were issued.
