A 24-year-old man was killed Thursday in a motorcycle crash in South Edgebrook on the Northwest Side.

A 53-year-old man driving a Jeep Wrangler west about 9:40 p.m. in the 6000 block of North Caldwell Avenue collided with the eastbound motorcyclist as the Jeep was turning left onto Leader Street, Chicago police said.

The motorcyclist, 24-year-old Mikolai Laszczewski, was taken to Lutheran General Hospital where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Witnesses in the area told officers that Laszczewski was traveling at high speeds, police said.
