A 21-year-old father was killed and two other people were critically injured in a crash involving a car and motorcycle in south suburban Burnham Thursday morning near 140th Street and Torrence Avenue. The motorcycle was badly damaged with bits of debris scattered across the road. The vehicle involved also sustained significant damage.

“Looks like we had a motorcycle that had two passengers hit a vehicle carrying two passengers, so a total of four people involved,” said Burnham Fire Chief Andrew Horberg.

Kendall King, 21, was riding on the motorcycle and was transported to Franciscan Health Hammond, where he died of his injuries. His passenger – the mother of his son – and one of the passengers in the car were transported in critical condition.

Illinois State Police and the South Suburban Major Accidents Team were on the scene investigating for several hours. Investigators did not comment on which party may have been at fault.
