A man driving a motorcycle in Riverdale was injured Sunday when a driver of a car disobeyed a stop sign and struck him, according to the accident investigator.
The man, who has not been identified by police pending notification of his family, was taken to Genesis Medical Center – East Rusholme Street, Davenport, Scott County Sheriff's Deputy Sean Thompson said. The man's condition was unknown Sunday.
The crash occurred about 2:15 p.m. Sunday at Eighth Street and Fenno Drive in Riverdale. The motorcycle driver was traveling east on State Street driving a red 2012 Honda 1800 motorcycle.
Sarah Elliott, 23, of Taylor Ridge, Ill., was driving a four-door tan 2002 Buick. She was turning left from Fenno Road to go east on State Street, when she hit the left rear of the motorcycle with the front right side of her car, Thompson said.
The collision sent the motorcycle and its driver into a side skid, with the motorcycle coming to a stop more than 200 feet away and the driver about 125 feet from the point of impact, Thompson said.
The motorcycle driver, who was not wearing a helmet, was transported to the hospital by Medic Ambulance, Thompson said. Elliott was cited for failure to obey a stop sign.
Other emergency responders who assisted at the scene included Scott County deputies, Bettendorf police, Medic Ambulance and Riverdale firefighters.
The accident remained under investigation late Sunday.
