A 22-year-old Plainfield community service officer died after the motorcycle he was driving was involved in a crash in Minooka over the weekend.
On Saturday morning, Tyler Dufour of Channahon was driving a motorcycle when he collided with another vehicle at Ridge Road and Prairie Ridge Drive, according to the DuPage County Coroner’s Office. Dufour was airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, where he was pronounced dead. Minooka police are investigating the crash but could not be reached for comment.
For the past two years, Dufour served as a community service officer in Plainfield, according to Plainfield police.
“Tyler brought a great work ethic, high levels of energy and a smile into all his duties and responsibilities. He will be greatly missed,” Plainfield police officials wrote on their Facebook page.
