Motorcycle rider dies in Frankfort Township crash

FRANKFORT TOWNSHIP – A Tinley Park man died early Monday after losing control of his motorcycle in Frankfort Township.

Will County Sheriff's deputies were called at 1:43 a.m. to the 7600 block of Benton Avenue to find the unresponsive rider lying on the sidewalk, spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said.

Laurence Mirabella, 47, had been riding a Harley Davidson when he lost control and was thrown to the ground, according to Hoffmeyer. It was unknown if he was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, she said.

Mirabella was taken to St. James Hospital in Olympia Fields with "severe head trauma" and was pronounced dead at 2:12 a.m., Hoffmeyer said.
