Motorcyclist killed in crash near Frankfort

A 47-year-old man died after crashing his motorcycle early Saturday near southwest suburban Frankfort.

Laurence Mirabella was driving a Harley Davidson in the 7600 block of Benton Avenue in Frankfort Township about 1:40 a.m. when he lost control and was thrown to the ground, according to Will County sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer.

Mirabella, of the 19700 block of South Woodruff Court in Frankfort, suffered severe head trauma and was taken to Franciscan St. James Health in Olympia Fields, where he was pronounced dead at 2:12 a.m., authorities said.

An autopsy Saturday ruled his death an accident.
