Aurora Man Motorcycle Crash
An Aurora man died after the motorcycle he was riding on crashed as it crossed over train tracks, according to the Naperville Police Department.
On Saturday at around 5:46 p.m., the Naperville Police Department and Naperville Fire Department headed to the site of the crash at 91st Street and Normantown Road. The incident was a single vehicle crash, a motorcycle with two riders. 27-year-old Jaelen Morain was pronounced dead on the scene. The other rider was taken to a local hospital by the Naperville Fire Department with “apparent minor injuries,” according to a press release.
The initial police investigation shows that the motorcycle, a 2005 blue Yamaha, was traveling eastbound on Hafenrichter Road at a high speed. When the motorcycle crossed over the train tracks, it lost control. Morain and the other person were thrown from the motorcycle. When police arrived, both riders were in a field south of the intersection of 91st Street and Normantown Road.
Traffic Crash Reconstruction Specialists from the Naperville Police Department’s Traffic Unit responded to the scene to investigate. Hafenrichter Road between 91st Street and Union Mill Drive was closed while the crash was under investigation. The roadway was reopened at around 11:45 p.m.
The crash investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the crash is asked to contact the Naperville Police Department’s Traffic Unit at 630-305-5477.
A memorial service for Morain will be held Saturday, August 28 at Calvary Church in Naperville. A GoFundMe page has been set up for his family.
