A Minnesota man was killed Wednesday afternoon after the motorcycle he was riding in Naperville crashed into a car that turned in front of him, police said.

The crash happened just before 1 p.m. at the intersection of Ogden Avenue and Iroquois Drive, Naperville police said in a release.

Emergency responders arrived to find the driver pinned between a 2007 Harley Davidson motorcycle and a 2015 Subaru Forester and his wife trapped underneath the vehicle.

Frederick M. Wendt, 66, of Andover, Minnesota, was taken to Edward Hospital with critical injuries and later died. Alice F. Wendt, 66, was also treated at Edward Hospital and held for observation.

Police believe the driver Jeffrey Ka Ho Ng, 18, of Aurora, was heading east on Ogden Avenue at Iroquois and made a left turn in front of the motorcycle, which was traveling west.

The crash remains under investigation.

Westbound lanes of Ogden were closed and eastbound traffic was reduced to one lane for more than three hours while officers from the traffic unit began their investigation. Ogden reopened by 4:20 p.m. when the damaged vehicles had been cleared.

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash or has any additional information should call Naperville Police Department's Traffic Unit at (630) 305-5379 or email Sgt. Al Trotsky at
