A Darien motorcycle accident has led to the death of a second person. This Darien motorcycle accident (apparently) occurred on Monday, September 27, 2021.
This fatal Darien motorcycle accident is discussed in a variety of media sources, including the October 6, 2021 Darien Patch article titled “2nd Death In Darien Motorcycle Crash: Cops.” An excerpt from the article, mentioning the two people riding on the motorcycle, Ronald J. Circelli, 57, and Laura Bala, 57, both of Cicero:
About 6:30 a.m. Sept. 27, Darien police received a call from a passerby who saw a motorcycle in a ditch between North Frontage Road and the Cass Avenue ramp to southbound Interstate 55, according to a police statement to Patch. Officers found Circelli and Bala next to the motorcycle, police said.
A preliminary investigation showed the motorcycle was traveling east on North Frontage when it left the roadway through a fence and down an embankment, police said.
Laura Bala was pronounced dead at the accident scene. Ronald Circelli passed away from his accident injuries this week.
As noted in a related article, the stretch of roadway where the motorcycle crash occurred apparently has a sharp curve.
