A 31-year-old man died from serious injuries he suffered in a motorcycle crash in Zion late Sunday evening, police and the coroner’s office said.

The Zion Police Department and Zion Fire Rescue Department responded around 11:53 p.m. Sunday to the 2800 block of Elizabeth Avenue for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.

Zion Police Department Lt. Derek Zaloudek said the crash involved a single vehicle, a white 2007 Honda CBR600RR motorcycle.

Emergency crews arrived to find the driver of the motorcycle was awake and alert.

It was not immediately clear whether the motorcycle struck anything.

Guillermo Reyes, 31, of Zion, was experiencing difficulty breathing at the scene, Zaloudek said.

The man was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash.

Paramedics transported Reyes to Vista Medical Center East in Waukegan.

Reyes’ condition significantly worsened upon arriving at the hospital and he was later pronounced dead.

An autopsy was performed Monday by the Lake County Coroner’s Office.

The coroner’s office said the autopsy showed Reyes suffered blunt force injuries to his chest and abdomen.

Zaloudek said the Zion Police Department requested the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT), which is standard practice when crashes involving serious injury or death.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the Zion Police Department at 847-872-8000.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
