A 57-year-old motorcyclist was airlifted to the hospital after crashing into a car that failed to yield on Route 173 near Richmond Thursday afternoon, the sheriff’s office said.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office and Richmond Township Fire Protection District responded around 12:20 p.m. Thursday to Route 173 and Keystone Road in unincorporated Richmond for a report of a crash involving a car and motorcycle.

McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Communications Specialist Emily Matusek told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that a 57-year-old Loves Park man was driving eastbound on Route 173 on a 2010 Harvey Davidson Fatboy.

An 18-year-old McHenry woman was driving southbound on Keystone Road in a white 2017 Nissan Versa.

The woman stopped at the intersection, then failed to yield the right of way to the motorcyclist, causing a crash, Matusek said.

A LifeNet medical helicopter was requested for the man and he was airlifted to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville where his condition stabilized.
