MAPLE PARK – A Yorkville man was airlifted to the hospital Thursday after a single-vehicle crash near the intersection of East County Line Road and Elm Street, police said.
According to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, Sean P. O’Gara, 20, of the 300 block of East Kendall Drive, was driving south on East County Line when he lost control of his Jeep Liberty. The SUV skidded across the northbound lane and then off the road. O’Gara’s vehicle hit a street sign, a tree and a small barn on the east side of East County Line before coming to a stop, police said.
Maple Park firefighters had to extricate O’Gara from the vehicle. He was then flown by Life Star helicopter to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, where he was in critical condition Thursday.
