Car fire on I-355 near Bolingbrook, 7-18-15

This from Dan McInerney:

Bolingbrook had an auto Saturday (7/18715) on the northbound 355, just south of Boughton. BLBK E3 and M3 were first in. DAWD E90 and M90 also responded but were like, meh, the fire is out, so they stood by and assisted where needed. Battalions from both departments responded as well. Fire was in a late model Dodge Neon 4-door.

Crash and fire on I94 (Edens) 4-8-12

Two car accident and fire I94 Edens at the Kennedy 4-8-12

Images prior to the arrival of fire companies of one car that flipped and caught fire. Tim Olk photo

Tim Olk submitted the following:

Two cars passed me doing well over 100 mph, one on my left and the other on the right at the Edens/Kennedy split. As they made the sharp turn I saw both lost control.  All I saw was smoke and car parts flying. Got on 9-1-1 and said there were 2 cars on fire and the need for a squad for a possible pin-in, 2 ambos and that I was searching for the occupants. Both cars were on fire . The upside down Caddy was on fire and it looked like both drivers were ejected. The guy was walking and the girl had to be pulled away from the car . The other driver asked me if everything was ok then walked away but later was found up the Edens with some other cars that had stopped. I hate the Kennedy at night after 2am, it’s a raceway.
