The 48-year-old driver of the Savana and the 21-year-old driver of the Explorer both had to be extricated from their vehicles by members of the Aurora Fire Department, police said.

Both men were taken to a suburban hospital in critical condition, police said. Their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
