A Mascoutah woman is in critical condition Friday after an SUV struck the motorcycle on which she was a passenger near Mascoutah High School.
Mascoutah Police Sergeant Kevin McGinnis said the woman, whose identity was not released at the scene, was airlifted by ARCH Air Medical Service to an area hospital and suffered critical injuries in the accident.
A red SUV stopped at a stop sign on North County Road and pulled out, striking the side of a motorcycle going westbound on Illinois 77 with two passengers, McGinnis said. Neither the driver of the SUV nor the driver of the motorcycle was injured.
“Likely the driver of the SUV will be ticketed on one or more violations,” McGinnis said. “It’s still under investigation, but he is at fault.”
