MANTENO TOWNSHIP — Ryan D. McBride, of Manteno, died as a result of injuries he sustained when he crashed his motorcycle Monday morning.

The 32-year-old McBride was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:30 a.m., according to Kankakee County Coroner Bob Gessner.

McBride suffered massive injuries. He was not wearing a helmet, Gessner said. An autopsy is scheduled for today.

Gessner said according to preliminary information from Illinois State Police District 21, McBride was southbound on his Harley-Davidson on Illinois Route 50 a quarter-mile north of 6000N Road at 12:09 a.m.

McBride and the motorcycle went up the curb and onto the median strip, where he hit a sign pole. McBride and the motorcycle came back onto the southbound lanes of Route 50 and skidded for 45 feet before rolling several times.

It marks the second fatal accident to occur during the Labor Day weekend.
