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.
