A motorcyclist was killed after colliding with a car last week in the south suburban South Holland.

About 1:10 a.m. Aug. 17, Cicero Porter, 56, was driving a motorcycle west on Old Vincennes Road near Van Drunen Road when he collided into a car that was heading south, according to South Holland police. The two are believed to have collided as they entered a curve.

“If we can continue toraise motorcycle awareness, both drivers and riders will be safer sharing the road,” South Holland Police Chief Shawn Staples said in a statement. “Our prayers are with the family of Cicero Porter.”
