Northbrook firefighters were dispatched to the southbound Tri-State Tollway (I-294) Thursday afternoon for a crash involving a car and a tractor-trailer. Companies found the driver of the car needing to be extricated after hitting the back of the truck’s trailer just prior to the southbound exit ramp to Willow Road. 

A Flight For Life medical helicopter was requested to the scene and landed on the highway after all lanes in both directions were shutdown.
