Motorcycle Crash On Kennedy

RIP, this happen right near me. Ride safe folks, hate seeing this stuff so early in the season.,5275261.story

"A 43-year-old man died and his friend was injured when their motorcycles crashed on the outbound Kennedy Expressway before midnight Thursday.

Authorities say Tom Winkelman, of the 6500 block of West Forest Preserve Drive in Chicago, went to the ground while operating a Harley Davidson motorcycle about 11:40 p.m. near Canfield Avenue.

Police say he may have been trying to avoid another vehicle but arenít certain. A friend of the man was driving a Honda motorcycle behind him and may have struck the man after he crashed, police said.

Both motorcyclists were licensed and insured and police said they didnít exhibit reckless behavior prior to the crash.

Charges arenít expected against the surviving motorcyclist, a 22-year-old man who was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in serious condition, police said.

Police closed the outbound lanes of the Kennedy Expressway for 5 hours overnight and opened the lanes before 5 a.m."
