An Elgin woman was cited for her part in a car versus motorcycle crash in East Dundee Thursday, one that sent a 27-year-old motorcyclist to the hospital with head injuries, officials said.
Gloria Torres, 30, was ticketed for driving without a driver's license and for failing to yield from a private drive, police said.

Authorities said the motorcyclist was northbound on Route 25 at about 3 p.m. when Torres pulled her car out of Walmart's main parking lot and into his path. The parking lot is also on Route 25, just south of Route 72.
The motorcyclist didn't have time to react and struck the car's left front fender, said Anthony Pompa, assistant chief of the East Dundee Fire Protection District.
The driver, identified as Felipe Montoya from Carpentersville, was not wearing a helmet, officials said. He was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital where he was being treated for nonlife threatening injuries, officials said. He was listed in good condition Thursday night, said Tonya Hudson, a Sherman spokeswoman.
Route 25 was reduced to one lane of traffic for about 30 minutes while authorities investigated, police said.
