I responded to a head-on crash today with Buffalo Grove (IL)  Quint 27. We were sent into Long Grove for a reported crash between a car and a semi where the car’s driver was trapped and the engine compartment was on fire. The unconscious driver was freed and later pronounced dead at an area hospital. Firefighters fought the fire and worked to extricate the driver simultaneously. The airbag did not deploy evidently due to the nature of the collision.
