A Streator man is dead after he crashed his motorcycle into a tractor.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll pronounced 65-year old Jerry Trenor dead last night at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  An autopsy is scheduled later today.

State Police say Trenor was on Route 178 yesterday afternoon near Matthiessen State Park behind a tractor driven by Daniel Corcoran of La Salle.  Officers say when Corcoran tried turning into a field, he was hit by Trenor.  Trenor was thrown from his bike as it overturned several times.  He was initially taken to IVCH in Peru before being flown to Peoria.

Corcorcan wasn’t hurt.
