A motorcyclist died in a crash Tuesday afternoon in the West Lawn neighborhood — the second motorcyclist to die in Chicago in a week.

Jose Cisneros Guerrero, 49, lost control of his motorcycle and struck a Honda Civic around 2:20 p.m. in the 5900 block of South Pulaski Road, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Guerrero fell off the motorcycle and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, police said.

He was pronounced dead around 3 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

On Saturday, a motorcyclist was killed in a hit-and-run crash Saturday night in Portage Park. Tanner Kapan, 25, was going east on Irving Park Road near Lockwood Avenue when the driver of a BMW sedan struck him and drove away.
