Fog cited in motorcyclist’s death

STILLMAN VALLEY – A dense fog late Sunday might have led to the death of a Rockford motorcyclist whose bike went off the road and hit a guardrail, police said Monday.

William A. Gray, 33, was pronounced dead at SwedishAmerican Hospital in Rockford.

A news release from Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn said that Gray was northbound on Kishwaukee Road about 9:43 p.m. when, because of dense fog and poor visibility, he did not follow the roadway as it curved left.

Gray and a passenger, Martie Sansone, 26, of Rockford, were thrown. Gray was not wearing a helmet.

Sansone was treated at Rockford Memorial Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, the release said.
