A man died Sunday evening in a motorcycle crash on I-55 near southwest suburban Indian Head Park.

Richard Earl Kubil, 54, was driving north at 6:08 p.m. on I-55 near Wolf Road when his motorcycle veered off the highway and struck a concrete median barrier on the left side, according to Illinois State Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Police said he was thrown from his motorcycle.

Kubil, who lived in the Clearing neighborhood on Chicago’s Southwest Side, was pronounced dead at the scene, the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Monday found he died of blunt-force injuries suffered in the crash and his death was ruled an accident.
