SHARE Man dead, woman seriously hurt in Aurora motorcycle crash

(AURORA) A southwest suburban man was killed and a woman seriously injured in a motorcycle crash Tuesday night in west suburban Aurora.

The two-vehicle crash happened about 9:30 a.m. at Hill Avenue and Montgomery Road, according to a statement from Aurora police.

Jacob W. Hastert, 28, was driving a 2005 Yamaha RS motorcycle southbound on Hill at a high rate of speed when he was struck by a northbound 2011 Nissan Sentra that turned left in front of him, police said.

The impact of the crash ejected both Hastert and his 37-year-old female passenger from the motorcycle, police said. Neither were wearing helmets.

Hastert, of the 25000 block of Presidential Avenue in Plainfield, suffered “massive” head injuries and was taken to an Aurora hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:58 p.m., police said.

His passenger suffered back and rib injuries, and was also taken to an Aurora hospital before being transferred to a hospital in Chicago, police said. Her condition was not immediately known Wednesday morning.

The driver of the Nissan, a 63-year-old Aurora woman, was ticketed for failure to yield while turning left. She was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

No signs of drug or alcohol use were found at the scene, police said.
