ROCKFORD – A 19-year-old Tampico woman whose snowmobile collided with a truck Sunday afternoon on Jersey Road south of the village remains in serious condition in the neurotrauma unit at OSF St. Anthony Medical Center.

A GoFundMe account has been established to help pay expenses for Madeline Lynn "Madi" Tornow, who has a broken ankle and two broken vertebrae, her family said in the post.

Tornow was northbound in a field west of the Hennepin Feeder Canal around 1:20 p.m. when she pulled onto Jersey and failed to yield to a vehicle driven by Todd E. Blosser, 29, of Tampico, the Whiteside County Sheriff's department said in a news release.

Blosser, who was eastbound, was unable to avoid the snowmobile, the release said.

Tornow is the daughter of Todd and Sandra Tornow of Tampico, and has a daughter, Kynzley, 2.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Conservation Police are investigating.
