SHARE Man seriously hurt in Naperville crash

(NAPERVILLE) An Aurora man was seriously injured in a traffic crash that shut down a west suburban intersection for almost six hours Friday.

The crash happened about 8:25 a.m. near the intersection of 75th Street and Book Road in Naperville, according to a statement from Naperville police.

A Mazda turning left from westbound 75th Street to southbound Book Road collided with a Toyota that had been heading west on 75th Street, police said.

The driver of the Toyota, a 45-year-old Aurora man, was trapped in his vehicle and firefighters had to cut him out of the wreckage, police said. He was seriously injured and airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

The 30-year-old Villa Park woman driving the Mazda was treated at Edward Hospital in Naperville for minor injuries, police said.

Parts of both streets were closed until about 1:15 p.m. as a crash reconstruction team investigated.

Anyone who saw the crash or has any information on what happened is asked to call Naperville police at (630) 305-5379.
