Authorities say a motorcyclist suffered severe injuries and had to be flown to the hospital after an SUV crashed into the motorcycle near Fox River Grove.

The Fox River Grove Fire Protection District and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded around 5:30 p.m. Sunday to the area of Algonquin Road and Braeburn Road in unincorporated Fox River Grove for a vehicle crash with injuries.

McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Communications Specialist Emily Matusek-Baker said deputies arrived to find a two-vehicle crash.

They learned a 1986 Harley Davidson FLH Series motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Algonquin Road.

A black Hyundai Santa Fe was traveling westbound when it attempted to make a left turn onto Braeburn Road, Matusek-Baker said.

The Hyundai collided with the motorcycle and the motorcyclist was ejected.

A LifeNet medical helicopter was requested and landed nearby at Algonquin Road Elementary School.

The driver of the Hyundai was not treated for any injuries. Both drivers were the sole occupants of their vehicles.

The driver of the Hyundai was issued two citations for failure to yield turning left and failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash.
