A woman was flown to the hospital and one man was arrested in the aftermath of a motorcycle collision on Monday in Crystal Lake.
Deputy Police Chief Tom Kotlowski said Crystal Lake Police and Fire/Rescue Units responded at 8:16 p.m. Monday to the intersection of Routes 14 and 31 for a traffic crash.
A preliminary investigation found that a 1995 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was heading east on Route 14 when for an unknown reason, it collided with the rear of a 2014 Ford Escape that was stopped facing east on Route 14 at Route 31.
Ryan Hurst, 38, of Alsip, who was driving the motorcycle, suffered injuries that were not life-threatening and was taken to Northwestern McHenry Hospital.
The motorcycle passenger, a 28-year-old McHenry woman, suffered serious injuries.
First taken to Northwestern McHenry, the woman was then immediately flown to Advocate Condell Hospital in Libertyville.
The driver of the Ford Escape, a 63 year old male from Fox River Grove, suffered no injuries, Kotlowski said.
As a result of the investigation, Hurst was arrested and charged with one count of driving while license revoked and five counts of aggravated DUI.
Hurst was transported to McHenry County Jail. Kotlowski said his bond was set at $3000.00.
“This case is considered an active investigation,” Kotlowski said.
