A 34-year-old motorcyclist from Elwood died Tuesday night after a single-vehicle crash in Rockdale.
Illinois State Police responded just before 9:50 p.m. Tuesday to the intersection of South Raynor Avenue and Wortman Drive for a reported single-vehicle crash involving a motorcycle, state police Sgt. Jacqueline Cepeda said.
Billy W. Mills Jr., the driver of the motorcycle, was pronounced deceased at 11:05 p.m. at that location, according to a news release from the Will County Coroner's Office.
State police are investigating the incident and did not provide any information about how the crash might have occurred Wednesday morning.
An autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday.
Mills is the third motorcyclist killed in the last week in the Will County area. A 56-year-old Florida man died June 27 after the motorcycle he was riding collided with another vehicle in Joliet. And a 63-year-old Bloomingdale man died June 26 in Mokena when the motorcycle he was riding lost control.
