    GALENA TERRITORY A woman from Bloomingdale, Illinois had to be helicoptered to the hospital in Rockford, Illinois, after a motorcycle crash.

    The Jo Daviess County Sheriffs Office says 24-year-old Buster Howard of Plainfield, Illinois was driving Sunday on Eagle Ridge Drive, near West Wachter Road, when he was going too quickly on a curve. Authorities say Howard crossed the road and went into the ditch.

    24-year-old Brittany Battaglia of Bloomingdale, Illinois was helicoptered from Midwest Medical to Rockford Memorial Hospital. Howard was treated and released from the hospital.

    Howard was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
