MVA with entrapment near Long Grove, 3-18-15

This from Larry Shapiro:

Long Grove FPD units with mutual aid companies from Buffalo Grove, Prospect Heights, and Arlington Heights were dispatched to a tractor-trailer rollover with possible entrapment on the NB I-53 offramp to EB Lake Cook Road around 2:40 this afternoon (3/18/15). Buffalo Grover Tower 25 was the first unit on-scene and confirmed that two occupants were trapped inside the truck that was on it’s roof. He requested a 2nd ambulance and a heavy-wrecker with airbags to assist with the rescue.

Two separate extrications were going … with Long Grove working to free the passenger while Buffalo Grove and Prospect Heights attended to the driver. There was talk of requesting a helicopter due to what was anticipated to be a prolonged extrication, but there was no need.  The passenger was freed first and the driver shortly thereafter. Arlington Heights Ambulance 4 and Long Grove Ambulance 55 transported to Lutheran General and Condell respectively.

Lincolnshire-Riverwoods Squad 51 was requested as a third squad but was released as they arrived on the scene.

Here are a few images from the scene with a full gallery at shapirophotography.net. I will also have a video of the extrication, plus images and video of the recovery by Hillside Towing.
