A man and woman from Illinois were sent to the hospital after a motorcycle crash in Green County, according to the sheriff’s office.

Deputies said a motorcycle driven by Robert D. Berg, 41, of Loves Park, Ill., was traveling north on County Road E near Saint John Road in the town of Decatur when he lost control of the motorcycle while negotiating a curve. The motorcycle left the right side of the highway and collided with a deep ditch, ejecting Berg and his passenger, Denise L. Berg, 42, according to deputies.

Both were taken to a Janesville hospital.

Deputies said operator experience and speed contributed to the crash.

Robert Berg was cited on suspicion of going too fast for conditions.
