PEORIA, IL-- A motorcycle crash killed one man in Peoria County today. Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says Roger Hutchison, 61, of Tremont was riding a motorcycle on Route 24 just before 10 o'clock this morning.

She says the vehicle in front of him turned right onto Kingston Mines Road-- that's where another car was attempting to turn left-- and Hutchison's motorcycle struck the driver's side of the vehicle. Hutchison was pronounced dead nearly a half an hour later in an OSF Saint Francis Medical Center emergency room.

Autopsy results show he died of multiple blunt force injuries from the accident.

Authorities are still investigating.
