Three people were hurt, including one man who was seriously injured and had to be extricated from his vehicle by Warrenville firefighters, following a Thursday afternoon crash at Warrenville Road and Mill Street, authorities said.

Police Cpl. Carl Abraham said the two-car crash likely was caused by a driver confused by the lack of traffic signals, which were off because of a power outage.

"Power to the lights at that intersection went out earlier in the day, and the four-way stop signs were in effect," Abraham said. "One driver didn't see the stop signs and continued through the intersection, colliding with another vehicle."

Abraham would not identify any of the people involved in the crash, what kind of vehicles they were driving, or the direction in which they were headed when the crash occurred.

Warrenville Fire Protection District Chief Dennis Rogers said all three people involved in the crash were taken to Edward Hospital in Naperville. The man who had to be removed from his vehicle had severe injuries, Rogers said, while the other driver and passenger had minor ones.

ComEd spokeswoman Elizabeth Keating said a crew was assigned to fix a "fuse issue" near the intersection at 9 a.m. and power remained off at the intersection until about 3 p.m.
