Katie M. Ioder, 20, was a passenger on a motorcycle driven by David M. Neuses, 21, of Princeton when the motorcycle crashed about 8:07 p.m. Saturday on 1562 W. Backbone Road. Both Ioder and Neuses were transported from the scene to Perry Memorial Hospital by Princeton Emergency Services and then Lifeflighted to OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
According to the Bureau County Sheriff's Department report issued Monday morning, the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Backbone Road when it left the roadway at some undetermined point. The point was impossible to find because emergency vehicles had driven over the motorcycle tracks, Sgt. Trey Barker said. However, from the point at which the motorcycle brake was applied to its final resting placing was more or a less a straight path and ran for 106 feet, he said.
