A 61-year-old man died after the motorcycle he was driving collided with a pickup truck in west suburban Geneva on Wednesday afternoon. 

At 4:36 p.m., emergency responders were sent to a crash involving a 2006 Harley Davidson motorcycle and a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck on Fabyan Parkway west of Kingsland Drive, according to the Geneva Police Department. 

The crash occurred at the entrance of the Settlers Hill Golf Course as the motorcyclist drove west on Fabyan and failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection and struck the pickup truck as it was exiting the golf course drive, police said. The motorcyclist, who was not wearing a helmet, was thrown to the road.

The motorcyclist, identified as 61-year-old Dale P. Slaughter, was taken by helicopter to Delnor Community Hospital in Geneva where he was pronounced dead, police said. He lived in the 1000 block of Windemere Lane in Aurora.

The 62-year-old South Elgin man who was driving the pickup was uninjured and released at the scene, authorities said.
