MAPLE PARK – A Yorkville man was airlifted to the hospital early Thursday after a single-vehicle accident near the intersection of East County Line Road and Elm Street, police said.

According to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, Sean P. O’Gara, 20, of the 300 block of East Kendall Drive, was southbound on East County Line when he lost control of his Jeep Liberty. The SUV skidded across the northbound lane and then off the road. O’Gara’s vehicle hit a street sign, a tree, and a small barn on the east side of County Line before coming to a stop, police said.

Maple Park firefighters had to extricate O’Gara from the vehicle. He was then flown by Life Star helicopter to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. No information about his condition was immediately available.
