QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- The Quincy Police Department releases the name of the person who died in motorcycle crash Monday night.

Police Chief Rob Copley said officers intended to pull Wolbrink over on Broadway for failing to signal a lane change.

Copley said Wolbrink then left the Barney's parking lot, went through the former Prairie Farms lot and began speeding south on 18th Street. His officer then turned off his lights.

Wolbrink later died at Blessing Hospital from his injuries.

The SUV driver was treated and released from Blessing Hospital.
