Northbound Rucker was completely closed for an hour Saturday night after an SUV and a convertible crashed at 43rd street. The crash happened around 5:30 PM.

The driver of the convertible had to be freed from his car by a ladder company and the Technical Rescue Unit of the Everett Fire Department using special tools to remove the car roof and other areas.

He suffered serious injuries. The driver of the SUV also suffered injuries and both were taken to Providence Regional Medical Center.

Traffic Investigators from Everett Police were called out to the scene. They are still working to determine what happened and if drugs or alcohol were a factor.
