A woman is dead after getting rear-ended by a van in Peru.

51-year-old Darla Lindenmier of Peru was pronounced dead Tuesday night after being flown to St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.  Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says Lindenmier was heading south on North Peoria Street on a motorized bicycle when she was hit from behind by a minivan.

The driver of the van, Janette Langan of Carbondale has been ticketed for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident.  Peru Police Chief Doug Bernabei says there are no signs that Langan was impaired at the time of the crash.  She and her five passengers weren’t hurt.

An autopsy on Lindenmier was planned for Wednesday.
