AURORA — A mother and son were seriously injured after their car became lodged under a semi truck Thursday morning.

According to Aurora Police, the accident started when the semi was attempting to turn left to south onto North Chambers Road from East 18th Avenue at approximately 7:30 a.m. The mother and son, who were travelling in a Volvo and heading northbound on Chambers, did not have a stop sign and slammed into the side of the semi as it turned.

As police work to clean up the scene, Chambers was closed between 18th Avenue and 17th Avenue.
