Peotone Resident Killed in Motorcycle Accident
John C. Miaczynski, a 52 year old Peotone resident, was killed Tuesday morning in a motorcycle accident. Illinois State Police District 5 investigators have released a preliminary report about the crash, but more investigations will be completed before a final statement is released.
At this point, police believe that Miaczynski was riding his 200 Ducati motorcycle eastbound on Wilmington-Peotone Road when he collided with the side of a truck. The larger vehicle was leaving Interstate 57 but did not yield to the cross traffic. The driver was ticketed for failure to yield at an intersection.
Our thoughts are with the victim of this accident and his family.
