Two Peoria residents are dead after their motorcycle was struck by an SUV while stopped at a stop light.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says Rachel and Korey Korenchuk were killed early Sunday.

The SUV slammed into the Korenchuks' motorcycle from behind and pushed the motorcycle into a smaller SUV that was stopped in front of them. Authorities say neither Korenchuk was wearing a helmet.

Police say the SUV's 29-year-old driver has been charged with reckless homicide, driving under the influence and other traffic violations. Authorities say the driver of the smaller SUV also was arrested on a DUI charge.
