Geneseo police and Henry County Coroner Dave Johnson are investigating the death of a 51-year-old Geneseo man killed when the motorcycle he was riding collided with another driven by his son Friday afternoon.

Brian K. Moffit was pronounced dead at the scene at 5:30 p.m. Friday, according to Mr. Johnson. He said the accident occurred in the 600 block of West Main Street in a grassy area behind the old NAPA auto parts store.

Mr. Moffit's son, Keith Moffit, was taken to Illini Hospital in Silvis and then transferred to OSF St. Francis in Peoria. A St. Francis spokesman on Monday afternoon said his condition was unavailable. 

Mr. Johnson said an inquest is pending. Geneseo Police Chief Tom Piotrowski could not be reached for comment.
