BUREAU COUNTY, Ill. (KWQC) – A motorcyclist has died after an accident on Saturday caused by grass clippings left in the road, according to witnesses.

Cheryl Zeglen, 59, of Canton, Illinois, was riding with her husband and other motorcyclists on County Highway Route 6 in Bureau County when the accident occurred.

When the group came upon grass clippings left on the road, the lead rider, Zeglen’s husband, Tom Zeglen, began to lose control, according to WEEK-TV.

When Tom Zeglen slowed down, Cheryl Zeglen crashed into him and was ejected from her motorcycle.

Zeglen died at the hospital two days later.

In late April, KWQC published a story about the potential dangers grass clippings can pose for motorcycle riders.

A Kentucky lawmaker has prefiled a bill which would make it a crime to leave unsafe amounts of leaves or mowed grass on highways.

Zeglen was a waitress at Joe’s Place in Norris, Illinois, and worked previously as a paralegal, according to her obituary.

Funeral services will be held Friday, June 14.
