Investigators suspect alcohol was involved

Four people were hurt when a wrong-way driver slammed into another car on Interstate 225 in Aurora Sunday morning.

The car was going southbound in the northbound lanes just before 3 a.m. and hit another car head-on just north of the Parker Road exit, according to Aurora police.

Four people were rushed to the hospital. Two of them were in critical condition. The other two do not have life-threatening injuries, police said.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash, Aurora police said.
