SHARE Motorcyclist killed in Northwest Indiana crash

A 22-year-old motorcyclist died Friday morning, two days after his bike collided with a car in Crown Point, Indiana.

About 7:20 p.m. Wednesday, Boge Risteski’s motorcycle crashed into a car on South Indiana Avenue near High Meadow Drive, authorities said.

Risteski wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and suffered “serious head trauma,” said Crown Point Police Chief Pete Land.

Risteski, of the 13600 block of Grand Boulevard in Crown Point, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 8:06 a.m. Friday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Saturday found he died of multiple injuries he suffered in the crash and his death was ruled an accident.

The driver of the car, a 53-year-old woman from Crown Point, suffered minor injuries from an airbag deployment, Land said.

The crash remains under investigation by the Crown Point Police Department’s Crash Reconstruction Team.
