Motorcyclist suffers 'life-threatening' injuries in U.S. 51 crash near Maroa


MAROA — A motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries when he was in collision with a car at the intersection of U.S. 51 and Wood Street in Maroa, Illinois State Police said Monday. 

Trooper Joseph Rush said in a statement that the motorcyclist, a 43-year-old man from Clinton, was taken to an unspecified hospital following the crash at 8:35 p.m. Friday. The 36-year-old male driver of the car, also from Clinton, was treated for injuries Rush described as “non life-threatening.”

Rush said the car driver was ticketed for failure to yield at a stop intersection after he pulled out from Wood Street into the path of the northbound motorcyclist on U.S. 51. Rush said the impact of the collision caused the motorcyclist to be thrown from his machine.
