PEORIA (WEEK) - A Manito man has been identified as the victim of a motorcycle crash with a car at the intersection of Veterans and Towerline in Pekin at around 12:24 p.m. Sunday.

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood says Dennis D. Hilst, 67, was thrown several feet from his bike on impact.

He was flown to OSF in Peoria where he was pronounced deceased at 2:47.

Autopsy on Hilst shows he suffered multiple blunt force trauma injuries because of the collision.

According to Pekin Police, Hilst was traveling north on Veterans when a car turned onto Veterans by making a left turn from Towerline - causing the collision.

He was reportedly not wearing a helmet, according to Harwood.

Toxicology is pending.
