She was being held in the Kane County jail. If she posts bond, she will have to wear an alcohol-monitoring device and undergo drug- and alcohol-use evaluation. She will also be prohibited from driving.

Her next court date is June 25.

According to police, Hill was driving a Nissan Rogue on Route 20 east of Route 47 and swerved into oncoming traffic, hitting a man on a motorcycle around 7 p.m. Hill then drove another quarter-mile until her car went into a ditch, police said, and then she started running through a field.

The Kane County sheriff's department is investigating the case.

The man was taken to Presence St. Joseph Hospital in Elgin, then transferred to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. No information is available about his condition. His name, age and hometown were not available early Friday.

According to the Illinois secretary of state's office, Hill's license was revoked in January 2013 in connection with a driving under the influence charge from December 2012. It had previously been suspended due to an Aug. 23, 2012, driving under the influence charge. A spokesman said she also had three convictions for driving without a valid license.
