Long Grove (IL) firefighters were assisted by Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire-Riverwoods, and Palatine firefighters at the scene of a crash with an extensive extrication Friday morning, 9/2/16 at the intersection of Lake-Cook Road and IL Route 53. The driver of a car was trapped after slamming into and becoming wedged underneath the rear of a tractor-trailer around 1:30AM. Three sets of hydraulic tools were utilized during the extrication which lasted close to an hour. A helicopter was requested but was cancelled as the patient was transported to Lutheran General Hospital by Palatine Ambulance 82.
