The driver and another person who was also in the car were treated at the scene and transported to Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora. Police did not release details on their conditions.

Heggs Road was closed between 119th Street and 127th for the crash cleanup and reconstruction. Heggs reopened around 8:55 a.m.
