A Bunker Hill, Illinois woman was seriously injured Sunday afternoon after being ejected from her motorcycle on Highway 7 just north of Tranquil Woods Road in Camden County.

A Missouri State Highway Patrol report states that Cynthia Weishaupt, 55, was driving south in a 2003 Harley Davidson Sportster when she traveled off the right side of the road and struck a road sign, causing her to be ejected from the motorcycle. Weishaupt was transported to University Hospital in Columbia by MU Air. 

The motorcycle was minorly damaged and towed from the scene by a private party. The Highway Patrol was assisted by the Camden County Sheriff's Department in its response.
