The crash occurred shortly after 7:30 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of Lake Street and Wheaton Road. Phillips, driving a 2010 Chevy Malibu, was making a left turn from a retail complex onto Lake Street when his car was broadsided by a 2007 Yamaha motorcycle driven by Wojcik, police said.
Witnesses told police that Wojcik was driving at a "high rate of speed," according to a release from the Roselle police.
The crash remains under investigation by Roselle police and the DuPage County Accident Reconstruction Team. The DuPage County coroner's office will conduct toxicology tests to determine whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
