Crystal Lake man thrown from motocross vehicle dies

A 23-year-old Crystal Lake man ejected from his motocross vehicle last weekend died Saturday.

Kyle R. Pratt was riding his 2002 Suzuki RM motocross on ComEd property in unincorporated Crystal Lake about 5:20 p.m. April 13 when he lost control and was ejected from the vehicle. The vehicle eventually collided with a chain link fence, according to a McHenry County Sheriff's Office news release.

Pratt was initially taken to Centegra Hospital- McHenry before being airlifted to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, where he died Saturday.

He was a 2008 graduate of Crystal Lake South.
