SHARE Police: Motorcyclist killed in I-55 crash near Burr Ridge

A motorcyclist was killed in a three-vehicle accident on Interstate 55 in west suburban Burr Ridge Friday evening, Illinois State Police said.

About 5 p.m., a Chevrolet was driving on the right shoulder of southbound I-55 just south of County Line Road as a Harley-Davidson and a Hummer were merging onto the interstate, according to a statement from state police.

The Chevrolet veered into the merge lane and struck the motorcycle, sending it crashing into the rear of the Hummer, state police said.

Daniel J. Dacanay, the 30-year-old motorcyclist, was taken to Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, where he later died, police said.

Charges were pending late Friday against the 43-year-old Chicago man behind the wheel of the Chevrolet, who also was hospitalized.

The Hummer’s driver, a 38-year-old Minooka man, was not hurt, police said.
