INFO: Bristol-Kendall Fire Protection District crews extricated a man from a PT Cruiser that was slammed into a guardrail by a semi. The man was airlifted by Lifestar helicopter. The semi driver was cited for running a red light. This intersection is just south of the scene of a head-on crash which occurred two days prior on 12/9/17.
Report by WPSY News:
Buffalo Grove (IL) police and firefighters were called to the scene of a two-car MVA Wednesday (6/15/16) at noon. Both drivers were injured and damage to the driver’s side of the sedan hampered access to remove the patient so a pin-in response was requested. Two engines, two ambulances, and the battalion were at the crash site in addition to several police officers. Two patients were transported to area hospitals.

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.
