RANDOLPH COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A Sparta man died in a motorcycle crash early Monday morning.

William C. Gyon, 54, of Sparta was killed in the crash around 12:15 a.m.

Gyon's Yamaha was westbound on Ridge Road about four-tenths of a mile west of Hillcrest Drive. This is just two-tenths of a mile from a motorcycle crash that killed two Sparta residents on Sunday.

Gyon's failed to negotiate a curve and left the road on the outside of the curve. The Yamaha entered a bean field after it struck an embankment and came to rest 172 feet from the roadway, according to Illinois State Police.

Gyon was ejected from the Yamaha.

Illinois State Police Investigators and an ISP Crash Reconstruction Officer along with the Randolph County Coroner’s Office are investigating the crash.

Gyon was not wearing a helmet, according to ISP.
