A Coal City man was killed in a crash on his motorcycle Sunday afternoon.

According to Grundy County Coroner John Callahan, 51-year old Daniel Ruffatto was going north on Jugtown Road in Morris shortly after 2:00. A van heading south was turning left onto Deerfield Road and hit Ruffatto.

He was thrown from his motorcycle. The coroner pronounced him dead at the scene less than an hour later.

The coroner claims Ruffatto was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. Both the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office and Coroner’s Office are still investigating the crash.
