Romeoville woman airlifted after 6-vehicle Aurora crash

AURORA – A Romeoville woman was critically injured Monday morning in a six-car crash.

The collision happened at 6:43 a.m. at Butterfield Road and DuPage Parkway in Aurora.

According to a Facebook post from the Aurora Police Department, Terrence L. Rush, 22, of North Aurora, was attempting to pass several eastbound vehicles while driving a 2014 Chevrolet Malibu.

"In an attempt to avoid a head-on crash, a westbound, 2015 Chevy Malibu driven by a 60-year-old Naperville man swerved and those two cars sideswiped each other," the post stated.

The Malibu driven by Rush then collided head-on with a westbound 2014 Nissan Sentra being driven by a 37-year-old Romeoville woman. Two minivans and another car then struck the Malibu and the Sentra.

The woman driving the Nissan was airlifted from the scene. Rush also had "critical injuries," according to the post, and was being treated at an Aurora hospital.

The drivers of two other vehicles were taken to a different hospital in Aurora for treatment and later released.

Rush was charged with improper lane use, the post stated. There were no signs of impaired driving at the scene.

The crash closed Butterfield Road for several hours.
