Two people, one of whom was airlifted, were sent to the hospital after a three-car crash Saturday afternoon on Fabyan Parkway near Roosevelt Road in West Chicago.

It took firefighters about 20 minutes to free the male victims left trapped in their car by the accident, according to a West Chicago Fire Department news release. Their ages were not immediately known.

A medical helicopter landed on Fabyan near the crash site and took one victim to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. The other victim was taken to Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield.

The occupants of the two other cars managed to free themselves before crews arrived, according to the release. Police continue to investigate the crash.
