Plainfield police identify second motorcyclist from fatal 2015 crash

On April 28, 2015, a pedestrian and a motorcyclist were killed in a crash on Route 59 and Lockport Street.

The man driving the motorcycle, Sean Fitzpatrick, 27, of Plainfield, died of his injuries and pedestrian Randy Lambert, 56, of Plainfield, was pronounced dead on the scene.  After a lengthy identification, police have now identified a second motorcyclist they say was involved in the accident. The case has been forward to the Will County State’s Attorney’s office for review.

Michael A. Bushar, 30, of Shorewood, has been charged with a Class A misdemeanor of driving 35 mph or more in excess of the applicable limit, Class A misdemeanor of reckless driving, operation of uninsured motor vehicle and violation of driver’s license classification.

Plainfield police Sgt. Mike Fisher said that in the very early stages of the investigation, witnesses indicated seeing and hearing more than one motorcyclist.

“Based on these accounts investigators developed leads that directed them to the suspect,” he added.
