SHARE Man extricated from car after Aurora crash

(AURORA) A man was extricated from his car after he was involved in a crash early Thursday in west suburban Aurora.

The 59-year-old Plano man was driving a 2014 Kia R-10 eastbound on Route 34 when he lost control trying to turn right on 75th Street and the vehicle went off the road about 4:40 a.m., according to Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli.

The car struck the curb and a traffic light before rolling over, then the traffic light fell on the vehicle, Ferrelli said.

The driver was extricated from the car and taken to an Aurora hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Ferrelli said. He was ticketed for improper lane usage.

Ferrelli said neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have played a role in the crash.
