Small plane slides off the runway at Chicago Executive Airport 4-2-20

Wheeling and Prospect Heights firefighters and police were dispatched for a reported plane crash just before 7PM Thursday evening (4/2/20) at the Chicago Executive Airport. Units were advised by the tower that a small plane with one soul on board had landed but was resting in roughly two feet of water in a drainage ditch alongside the runway. Wheeling Battalion 24 found the pilot in good condition inside the plane and no hazards. Only units from the still district were held at the scene and all others were held up. The pilot self extricated from the plane and signs a medical release form at the scene. One fire company remained on the scene as a wrecker arrived to remove the plane, a Cessna Skyhawk, from the ditch.

MVA in Vernon Hills, 6-6-19

This from Larry Shapiro:

Here are some images from a three-car crash on Milwaukee Avenue at Woodlands Parkway 6/6/19 in Vernon Hills. There were multiple occupants between the three cars but all signed releases at the scene. The accident was apparently caused when one driver pulled to the curb southbound as a Lincolnshire-Riverwoods FPD ambulance was heading north to a hospital with a patient from an unrelated incident. One car failed to stop and hit the first, and then a third car plowed into the second one.

MVA in Wheeling, 6-4-19

Prospect Heights firefighters were dispatched to a one-car MVA Tuesday afternoon (6/4/19) in the express lanes of Palatine Road just west of Wolf Road. A new Cadillac SUV was precariously along the embankment after running through and getting stuck in a section of open curbing that was dug out for replacement. The driver was alone in the car and not complaining of injuries, but was unable to get out of the car. Firefighters assisted the occupant out of the car and was then evaluated by paramedics. 

 

The new buggy for Prospect Heights Battalion 9, recently placed into service is seen in several photos.
