A young man and woman, who graduated from Plainfield high schools, were killed in a Friday morning motorcycle crash in Chicago.

Lindsey Morgan Tinson, 20, and Jason Kenealy, 22, both residents of Plainfield, were pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Tinson and Kenealy both lived in Plainfield, the medical examiner’s office said.

The two were killed near the intersection of 41st Street and South Pulaski Road.

“The male driver of a truck was turning left onto 41st Street, when a male driver of a motorcycle and a female passenger struck the truck,” Officer Jose Jara of the Chicago Police Department’s Office of Communications said in an email.

No other injuries were reported, and the department’s major accident unit is investigating the crash, Jara said.

The motorcycle collided with a semi-trailer, according to medical examiner’s office records.

Tinson graduated from Plainfield East High School in 2016, her obituary said, and she worked for Universal Direct.

Kenealy graduated from Plainfield Central High School and was a member of the Army National Guard since 2013, according to his obituary, which said he was a student at Joliet Junior College and worked at Direct Energy in Aurora.

Tinson leaves behind a young son, her obituary said.

Overman-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services handled arrangements for both Tinson and Kenealy.
