Gurnee firefighters said they extricated a 22-year-old man from his car after a one-car accident Sunday morning.

Firefighters said the accident occurred at 10:45 a.m. on northbound Route 41 just south of Route 120 in Park City.

They said the car hit a guardrail, after which the five feet of guardrail entered the car itself, piercing the compartment until it reached from the driver's door to the door on the passenger's side.

Firefighters said they used extrication equipment to remove the door and the guardrail.

The man was taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville with lower leg and abdominal injuries.
