Illinois State Police say that a Warrenville man died after he was struck by a pickup truck near Newark on Monday afternoon.

ISP officials say 58 year-old Peter Dudak is the deceased.

Authorities responded to the crash, which occurred at the intersection of Route 71 and Ottawa Road, around 3:07 p.m.

According to preliminary investigations, Dudak, who was operating a motorcycle, was traveling northbound Route 71 when a pick-up truck, being driven by 78 year-old Larry Larson of Sheridan, was traveling on Ottawa Road.
