Man Flown to Peoria after Possibly Falling from Bicycle in Oglesby

Posted by wlpo on October 6, 2016

When you hear about someone being found at night by a bike, you probably think it’s a motorcycle. A man who was found Wednesday night in Oglesby was, in fact, riding a bicycle.

The man was found around 8:30, and had to be taken via LifeFlight to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria. Oglesby Police Chief Jim Knoblauch says the man has been identified, but police are still waiting to release his name.

Knoblauch did say that the doctor confirmed the man had suffered a head injury, and the accident wasn’t a hit and run. He went on to say the accident remains under investigation.
