A Highland Park man, who survived the Highland Park parade shooting and was a member of a Chicago punk rock band, died after crashing his bicycle into an Amazon truck.

The Glencoe Public Safety Department responded around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday to Sheridan Road and South Avenue in Glencoe for a vehicle crash with injuries.

A 64-year-old man was riding a bicycle northbound on Sheridan Road, police said.

The bicyclist struck the rear of a parked Amazon truck and suffered critical injuries, police said.

Paramedics transported the man to Evanston Hospital where he died days later on Saturday morning.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as John F. Kezdy, 64, of Highland Park.

Kezdy was the frontman for the punk band The Effigies in the 1980s, according to his obituary. He toured the U.S. and Canada and contributed to several record albums.

He later attended Northwestern University and then obtained his Juris Doctor from DePaul University.

Kezdy worked for the Illinois Office of the State’s Attorney Appellate Prosecutor’s drug unit, his obituary said.

He was later hired in 1996 by the Illinois Attorney General’s office to prosecute cases with the Statewide Grand Jury Bureau. Kezdy became the chief of the bureau in 2004 until his retirement in July 2022.

Kezdy survived the Highland Park parade shooting on July 4, 2022, after being shot in his elbow, according to the Illinois Attorney General’s office.

He leaves behind his wife of 24 years and two children.

The crash remains under investigation by the North Regional Major Crash Assistance Team and Glencoe Public Safety Department.

Editor’s Note: A report from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office listed the man’s last name as “Kezday.” His last name is actually “Kezdy.” This has since been corrected in the story.
