JOLIET, Ill. (AP) - Friends of a northern Illinois man who was killed in a motorcycle crash have organized a ride to honor his life and criticize the lenient sentence given to the driver who was responsible for his death.

The (Joliet) Herald-News (https://bit.ly/1PZMuJP ) reports that riders will meet at Double J Sports Bar in Joliet for “Justice for Ron Oswald” on July 17.

In July 2012, Oswald was riding his motorcycle in Plainfield when the driver of a Dodge Durango slammed into a Nissan Altima and pushed it into Oswald’s path. Oswald, of Minooka, was killed and the family of four in the Altima was injured.

The driver of the Durango, 28-year-old Andrew W. Henderson, of Palos Park, was under the influence of heroin and a painkiller.

Henderson spent two years in jail before undergoing drug treatment.
