A motorcyclist was killed in a crash with a deer late Tuesday in northwest suburban Sycamore.
James E. Willson, 51, was riding a Harley Davidson motorcycle northbound on Five Points Road near Old State Road in Sycamore when he struck a deer and crashed about 11:30 p.m., according to the DeKalb County sheriff’s office.
Willson, of Kingston, was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb, where he was pronounced dead, a statement from the sheriff’s office said.
He was wearing a helmet during the crash and speed was not a factor, authorities said.
The deer was also killed in the accident, police said.
