A Fox Lake woman was critically injured Sunday after she was hit on her motorcycle in a hit-and-run crash in north suburban unincorporated Antioch.

The woman, 30, was westbound on her Harley Davidson motorcycle about 1:45 a.m. on Grass Lake Road when she crossed into the eastbound lanes and struck a Chrysler near Hillside Avenue, the Lake County sheriff’s office said.

The Chrysler took off from the scene and stopped at a restaurant in the 24500 block of West Bluff Lane, where the driver, a 26-year-old man, reported his vehicle stolen, the sheriff’s office said.

After being questioned, the man admitted that his vehicle had not been stolen and he was driving the Chrysler at the time of the crash, the sheriff’s office said.

The woman driving the motorcycle was taken to Condell Medical Center with serious-to-critical injuries, the sheriff’s office said.

The driver of the Chrysler was taken to the hospital for toxicology testing, the sherriff’s office said. Charges are pending.
