Driver may have been going too fast on state highway

An Illinois man has died while riding a motorcycle through Monroe County. 

Fifty-five-year-old Marek Surmacz was thrown off his cycle after he spun out of control on Highway 27 near Cataract. 

Surmacz died after the cycle flipped over in a ditch. 

The crash happened late Saturday afternoon. 

Investigators think speed may have been a factor.
