The coroner’s office has identified a 57-year-old man who died after he was involved in a crash with a pickup truck while riding his bicycle in McHenry last weekend.
The McHenry Police Department and McHenry Township Fire Protection District responded around 10:25 a.m. Saturday to the 4400 block of West Elm Street in McHenry.
McHenry Deputy Police Chief Thomas Walsh said officers responded to a report of a crash involving a single vehicle and bicyclist.
McHenry County Chief Deputy Coroner Olivia Zednick said Tuesday that the bicyclist was identified as Randall Hayes, 57, of Wonder Lake.
A preliminary investigation determined Hayes was traveling westbound on Elm Street when he swerved his bicycle in front of a 2006 Ford F-250 pickup truck, which was also traveling westbound, Walsh said.
Hayes was transported to Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Hayes was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The single occupant of the Ford F-250 did not report any injuries at the scene.
Walsh said there were no indications that drugs or alcohol played a factor in the crash.
The roadway was partially closed for approximately four hours.
The McHenry County Regional Crash Assistance Team responded to the scene to conduct an investigation.
The team consists of police officers from the McHenry Police Department, Woodstock Police Department, Spring Grove Police Department, Harvard Police Department, Cary Police Department and the Johnsburg Police Department.
The incident remains under investigation.
