The Ram 1500 pickup truck was southbound on North 200 East, stopped a stop sign at the intersection of East 200 North and proceeded through the intersection after not seeing anyone coming, said Washington City Police spokesman Ed Kantor.

A woman in her 50s driving a motorcycle on East 200 North struck the passenger side of the pickup truck, Kantor said. She was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.

The woman was quickly taken to the hospital in suspected critical condition, Kantor said. The driver of the pickup truck was uninjured.

“There was no sign of impairment on either side,” Kantor said. “Because it’s still under investigation, there has been no enforcement action taken as of yet.”

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement and may not contain the full scope of findings.
