A man died early Sunday, hours after being injured in a motorcycle crash in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side.

About 11:25 p.m., a 2001 Mercury traveling north on North Kedzie Avenue made a left turn onto West Madison Street and was struck on the passenger side by a motorcycle, according to Chicago Police.

A passenger on the bike, 28-year-old William Barrion, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 4:23 a.m. Sunday, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Barron lived in the West Garfield Park, less than two miles from where the crash happened.

The 47-year-old woman driving the bike was taken in serious condition to Stroger Hospital, police said.

A passenger in the Mercury, a 36-year-old woman, suffered “minor injuries” in the crash and was taken to a hospital, police said.

The 39-year-old man driving the vehicle was issued citations for not having a valid driver’s license, not having insurance and an improper left turn.
