MADISON COUNTY — A motorcyclist from Alton was fatally injured in a two-vehicle crash Tuesday in Madison County, the coroner said.
Coroner Stephen P. Nonn identified the victim as Tyler D. Slack, 22, of Alton.
Nonn said Slack was on a motorcycle that collided with an SUV at Homer Adams Parkway and Buckmaster Lane at 6:46 p.m. Tuesday.
Slack was heading east on Homer Adams Parkway when a westbound SUV turned south onto Buckmaster, Nonn said.
Slack was wearing a helmet but was thrown from the motorcycle when the vehicles collided, Nonn said. Slack died at a hospital.
The person driving the SUV is a juvenile, and Nonn said the Alton police and Metro East Crash Assistance Team are helping in the investigation. Routine toxicology tests are pending, Nonn said.
