A 72-year-old man was charged with driving under the influence after his SUV rear-ended a motorcycle Sunday afternoon near northwest suburban Woodstock.

Robert Harney was driving a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban south on Route 47, just north of Hercules Road, when the SUV struck the back of a 2016 Harley Davidson motorcycle, which then rear-ended a 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe that was stopped in traffic, according to the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

The motorcyclist, a 51-year-old Hoffman Estates man, was flown by Flight for Life to Condell Hospital in Libertyville, where he remains in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.

Harney was taken to Centegra-Woodstock Hospital with minor injuries, according to the sheriff’s office.

The driver and a passenger in the Tahoe were treated at the scene.

Harney, of Woodstock, was charged with one felony count of aggravated DUI, according to the sheriff’s office.
