John R. Hawley, 65, of Wentzville, was killed Thursday morning after the motorcycle he was driving was struck by a hit-and-run driver.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Hawley’s 2007 Harley Davidson was rear-ended by an unknown red pickup truck on eastbound I-70 west of Highway K. The motorcycle spun, traveled into another lane, and overturned. At that point, it was struck by another vehicle being driven by a 60-year-old male from Bellflower, MO.

The red pickup fled the scene, MSHP reported.

Hawley was pronounced dead at the scene by St. Charles County Ambulance District personnel.


  1. Please, please if anyone has any information on my father’s accident. I’m at such a loss, my only comfort comes from having spoken with him earlier that morning. He was such a wonderful person and will be missed dearly. I love you dad!

  2. John Was a good man. He was a hard worker. He was a father and grandfather. Praying someone sees the truck with front end damage and reports it. Praying for John’s family. God Bless all of you.

  3. John was a good man and will be missed. He worked for Laclede Gas for over 25 years. We use to call John “Jethro” because he was tall and lanky. He had a way to make you smile. See you later John.

  4. So many vehicles on the road that morning it seems like someone saw what happened. Please call the Missouri State Highway patrol. You can dial *55 from your cell phone. Do you know who you are that hit this motorcycle. You will never get peace until you confess.

  5. My heart goes out to this biker bro and his family ! Need to get that red pickup ? please call M.H.P if u seen anything !


    My name is Jonathan Hawley, please help our family in our time of need. I spoke to my father @ 7:45 am that morning and it was the last phone call we ever had. If anyone has any information regarding the accident please share it with authorities. We are heart broken and will miss him terribly. Thank you all so much for your continued prayers and support. I love you Dad. Your son, Jonathan.
