MVA with fire in Prospect Heights, 5-1-21

This from Prospect Heights FPD Chief Drew Smith:

At 05:07 on Saturday, May 1 Prospect Heights and Wheeling companies were dispatched to an accident with extrication on eastbound Palatine Road near Wolf. First arriving units found a minivan on fire and at least two other cars involved. The scene was located just east of the Canadian National railroad bridge. No one was transported to the hospital despite the damage to the vehicles involved. A Superior ambulance was also on scene as they could not pass the crash scene. I am told they began triage before companies arrived.

This evening Oak Brook Firefighters responded to a motor vehicle accident that involved a prolonged extrication. Due to recent cuts in manpower, Oak Brook only had 2 firefighters available to man our squad and 1 firefighter available in a suv to handle this technical extrication. This incident required assistance from Berkley, Hillside, Oakbrook Terrace and York Center. The patient was extricated and transported to Loyola Hospital via helicopter.

Car into a building in Chicago, 2-28-21

This from Steve Redick:

4500 block of N Austin in the wee hours of 2-28. These were taken the next day. I have not seen a car buried into the corner of a building like this before. Pretty amazing if you look closely. I am also amazed the CFD left the scene to what I guess would be a contractor to remove the wreckage. I would be worried about fire and collapse. I wasn’t there to see what preceded this so I am not in a position to really comment, but I thought these were worth a look.

This from Asher Heimermann:

Two people were rescued with the Milwaukee Fire Department Dive Team searching for a third after a police pursuit ended in a rollover crash along the bank of the Milwaukee River on Wednesday, December 2, 2020.

If the vehicle had rolled once more, it would’ve ended up in the Milwaukee River.
