Romeoville man killed in motorcycle crash on Boughton Road early Wednesday

BOLINGBROOK – A 25-year-old Romeoville man was killed in a motorcycle crash early Wednesday, and police believe speeding and alcohol were a factor.

Richard H. Ford was found unconscious and having trouble breathing at the intersection of Aspen Lane and Boughton Road around 2:37 a.m. Wednesday, police said. He was pronounced dead at 3:09 a.m. after being transported to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, police said.

Ford was traveling eastbound on Boughton Road and lost control at Aspen Lane, striking the median, according to police. It's unclear how fast he was traveling.

Police said Ford, who was not wearing a helmet, was then ejected from the motorcycle as it slid into the intersection of Route 53 and Boughton Road. No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Boughton Road was temporarily reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction and then re-opened at approximately 6 a.m., police said.
