Crash occurred near Chicago Street in Joliet

A 60-year-old Chicago man died over the weekend after the motorcycle he was driving crashed on Interstate 80.

Garcia was pronounced dead at 12:42 p.m. Saturday at AMITA Health Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet.

An autopsy revealed he suffered injuries consistent with a motorcycle crash, the coroner's office said. Illinois State Police are investigating the incident but could not immediately be reached for more information Monday.
