    One man was killed and two other people were injured in a crash involving a car and a motorcycle in Chicago's south suburbs early Thursday.

    The crash took place at around 1:30 a.m. on Torrance Avenue between 140th and 142nd streets in Burnham, authorities said.

    Illinois State Police were on the scene, conducting an investigation and doing a full reconstruction to see exactly how the car and motorcycle collided.
