Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:
Firefighters needed more than an hour Monday afternoon to remove an injured woman from her SUV after a crash with a dump truck on northbound Route 41, south of 137 in North Chicago just before 1 p.m.
The woman was then airlifted by Flight for Life.
“It was an extremely difficult extrication,” said Cmdr. Joshua Rickabaugh of the North Chicago Fire Department. “The way that the victim was pinned inside the car, it was difficult to remove the car around her.”
Libertyville, Knollwood, and Great Lakes fire departments assisted at the scene.
