The Sangamon County Coroner’s Office has released the identification of the motorcyclist who died after an accident in Springfield Wednesday afternoon.
Gavin Chatmon of Kincaid was pronounced dead at Memorial Medical Center shortly after Wednesday’s accident. Springfield police report that Chatmon’s motorcycle collided with a SUV that performed a u-turn to avoid a train on nearby tracks.
His motorcycle then continued to collide with another vehicle. Corner Cinda Edwards says the preliminary cause of death was blunt force injuries.
