MILLEDGEVILLE – Two motorcyclists died Sunday night in a collision with a car, the Illinois State Police said Tuesday.
The car was driving north on state Route 40 just north of Clark Road in Milledgeville about 7:30 p.m. when it crossed the center line and struck the motorcycle driving south, state police said.
Timmie Holland, 69, of Shelby, North Carolina, and formerly of Sterling and Rock Falls, and his passenger, Jo-Allen Taylor, 49, of Dixon and formerly of Sterling and Polo, died at the scene.
The car’s driver, 19-year-old Andrew Lapp, of Milledgeville, was treated at an area hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening and cited for improper lane usage, the ISP said.
Preston-Schilling Funeral Home in Dixon is handling Taylor’s arrangements.
