Fire officials say a woman was flown to the hospital in critical condition after she was struck by a vehicle in Woodstock Wednesday evening.

The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District and Woodstock Police Department responded around 5:48 p.m. Wednesday to the area of Eastwood Drive and Irving Avenue for a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle.

Paramedics arrived on the scene within two minutes and located an adult female lying on the ground, according to Woodstock Fire/Rescue District Communication Specialist Alex Vucha.

The woman was suffering from various traumatic injuries. An initial report indicated the woman was riding a bicycle but fire officials did not confirm that information.

A medical helicopter was immediately requested and landed at the helipad at Northwestern Medicine Hospital in Woodstock.

Vucha said the woman was transported to the hospital by ambulance where she was transferred to a LifeStar Chicago helicopter.

The helicopter subsequently transported the woman in critical condition to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

No other injuries were reported in the incident, Vucha said. It is unclear what led to the collision.

The Woodstock Police Department is investigating the crash. The department has not released information on the incident as of Wednesday evening.
