N. Aurora man hurt in motorcycle crash

AURORA – Jose S. Sanchez, 29, of the 100 block of East State Street in North Aurora, was charged Wednesday afternoon with failure to reduce speed, driving without a valid motorcycle license and driving without a driver’s license after his motorcycle rear-ended a car.

The crash occurred at 3:50 p.m. on River Road, 25 feet west of Clearwater Drive. According to Aurora police, Sanchez was driving his 2005 Honda CBR 600 motorcycle north on River Road, apparently at a high rate of speed, when his motorcycle hit a 2009 Pontiac Sedan driven by a 49-year-old North Aurora woman, who also was driving north.

Sanchez was ejected from the motorcycle and hit the rear windshield of the Pontiac. He fell off the vehicle when it stopped, police said. He was taken to an Aurora hospital for serious, but not life-threatening injuries.

He was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, police said. The driver of the Pontiac refused medical attention.
