A 40-year-old man was pronounced dead after he was found unconscious on the sidewalk after a motorcycle crash.

On Thursday, the Orland Park Police Department were called about a single vehicle crash near Wheeler Drive and Lowes Avenue around 6:20 p.m., according to a release from the department.

John Nassenstein, of Schererville, Ind., was found unresponsive on the sidewalk, and was taken to Silver Cross Hospital by the Orland Fire Protection District, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
