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

Quincy police say 21-year old Carl Wolbrink of Quincy was driving at least 66 miles per hour on 18th Street when he collided with an SUV at the intersection of 18th and Maine.

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.
