The man has been identified as Chicago resident Maxwell M. Cronk, 38, Evanston Police Cmdr. Jay Parrott said.

The accident occurred at about 7:40 a.m. near Calvary Catholic Cemetery, 301 Chicago Ave., Parrott said. Cronk was not wearing a helmet and “lost control at a high rate of speed,” Parrott wrote in an email to The Daily.
