MORRIS – A Mokena man who was killed in a motorcycle crash Saturday died from blunt force trauma injuries to his abdomen area, according to autopsy results.

Matthew Domzal, 35, lost control of his motorcycle while riding with a group on east Route 6 just east of Brisbin Road, according to a news release from Grundy County Coroner John Callahan’s office.

Domzal was riding toward the back of the group when his motorcycle went down on the pavement, according to the news release. He was not wearing a helmet.

His motorcycle was the only one to go down, the coroner said Monday.

An autopsy done Sunday morning showed he died of blunt force trauma injuries to the abdominal area, John Callahan said. The exam showed no indication of medical issues that may have occurred to cause the crash.

Grundy County Sheriff Kevin Callahan said Monday a reconstructionist was sent to the scene Saturday and that some other riders in the group still had to be interviewed.

As of Monday, the sheriff said the reason Domzal’s motorcycle went down was unknown and there was no new information available on the incident.

Coroner John Callahan said his office is working with the sheriff’s office on the investigation.

Domzal was transported Saturday afternoon to Morris Hospital and pronounced dead upon arrival.
