PEORIA HEIGHTS (WEEK) — The Peoria County Coroner said one man died due to multiple, severe blunt-force trauma injuries following a motorcycle accident early Saturday morning.

22-year-old Ian A. Nemeth Jr. of Loda, Illinois was pronounced dead Saturday morning after aggressive resuscitative efforts.

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood said just after 3:00 a.m., multiple departments – including State Police – were dispatched to Illinois Route 29 and East Riverview Lane for a motorcycle-vs-sedan head-on collision.

Hardwood said upon arrival, Nemeth was located in the roadway of Route 29 south of the vehicles, unresponsive, not breathing, and with no pulse.

Emergency life-saving measures were initiated, and Nemeth was transported to a local hospital in grave condition. He was pronounced deceased just before 4:00 a.m.

Harwood said a toxicology report is pending, and it is not known whether Nemeth was wearing a helmet.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation by the State Police.
