North Aurora police responded to a one car accident where the vehicle had crashed into a utility pole on Route 25 near the entrance to Red Oak Nature Center at 2:11 p.m., said Deputy Chief Scott Buziecki.
One person from that car was airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove and was in critical condition early Sunday evening, he said.
