Motorcyclist killed in Channahon crash

CHANNAHON – A 41-year-old man was killed in a motorcycle crash early Friday.

Police Chief Jeff Wold said two people were riding a Suzuki motorcycle at about 1:40 a.m. on Center Street near Route 6. Neither the man who was killed in the crash, nor his passenger, an adult woman, were wearing helmets, Wold said.

"It appears he was traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control where the road curves and went into the ditch," Wold said.

The man, a Channahon resident, was taken to Presence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, where he was pronounced dead at 2:04 a.m. The Will County Coroner's office was withholding the man's name until family could be notified.

His passenger was listed in serious condition Friday morning, but was expected to survive, Wold said.
