The Palos Heights co-founder of the Illinois Motorcycle Freedom Run and one of the founders of a memorial wall dedicated to military personnel killed in the Middle East conflicts died Sunday afternoon in a motorcycle accident in Grundy County, officials said.
Anthony R. Cutrano, 52, died Sunday afternoon of multiple injuries he sustained in the crash near Seneca, according to Grundy County Coroner John Callahan.
The crash happened at about 3 p.m. on Route 6, about two-tenths of a mile north of Bluff Road. The area is known as Holderman Hill, Callahan said in a statement.
According to a preliminary investigation, Cutrano was driving northeast when he went into an included curve and lost control of his Harley Davidson motorcycle.
The motorcycle came into contact with the guardrail on the east side of the road, Callahan said, and traveled about 300 feet along the guardrail before Cutrano was thrown off the bike.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. Cutrano was not wearing a helmet, according to Callahan.
