A 65-year-old man died the morning after he crashed his motorcycle Friday in the Northwest Side Norwood Park neighborhood.

About 11 p.m. Friday, Thomas Gilleran was driving his motorcycle south in the 5700 block of North Canfield when it struck a curb and crashed, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. No other vehicles were involved, and he was the only person injured.
