Unconfirmed midair between Piper Apache and unidentified RPA

Drone Mid Air Wing1
The unconfirmed report is that a “company survey” aircraft impacted a small UAS at 2,500 feet near Lewis University (KLOT) Illinois on August 27, 2015 causing damage to the leading edge of the manned aircraft wing. The only confirmed RPAS manned aircraft strike occurred in 2011 in Afghanistan.
More as we get it but this is what we know
The manned aircraft was N900AM, a Piper Apache.
Looks like it was the tail that was hit to me
