MAPLE PARK—Kane County Sheriff Deputies on Tuesday afternoon responded to a report of a collision between a dirt bike and an ATV on Read Road, near the village of Lily Lake.

A preliminary investigation indicates that three males, all in their mid-teens, were riding off-road vehicles in the roadway. One of the subjects, riding a dirt bike, appeared to have stopped suddenly for an unknown reason and was struck from behind by a subject riding an ATV. The ATV came to rest on one of the males involved in the collision.

The third subject was not involved in the collision, but stopped to render aid.

The two males involved in the collision suffered head injuries and were airlifted out. There is no confirmation on whether they were wearing helmets. One of the injured was taken to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, Ill.; the other a hospital in Rockford.
