A North Aurora motorcyclist was injured Wednesday afternoon after he rear-ended a vehicle on Route 25, officials said.
The crash happened just before 4 p.m. at Route 25 and Clearwater Drive, near the border of North Aurora and Aurora. The 30-year-old motorcyclist was taken to a hospital with injuries believed to be serious but not life-threatening.
Speed may have played a factor, Aurora spokesman Dan Ferrelli said.
The area between Sullivan and Butterfield roads remained closed for several hours while North Aurora and Aurora police investigated the crash.
Aurora's traffic division continues to investigate, Ferrelli said.
