A man killed in a Geneva motorcycle crash Saturday has been identified, officials said Tuesday.

John Jones, 70, of Bloomingdale died from multiple injuries due to a motorcycle crash, according to a news release from the Kane County coroner's office.


Geneva police say a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, driven by a 24-year-old Aurora man, was heading west on Route 38 and veered into the eastbound lanes, crashing head-on with Jones' 2015 Harley Davidson motorcycle around 1:45 p.m. Saturday just east of Crissey Avenue. Jones, who had been wearing a helmet, was taken to Northwestern medicine Delnor Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 2:17 p.m.

The pickup truck driver and his three passengers were not injured, and neither speed nor alcohol are believed to be a factor, Geneva police said Saturday, but charges are anticipated.
