An accident on northbound Illinois Route 53 after 4 p.m. involved a semi-trailer truck, two SUVs, and one pickup truck in the northbound lanes of Route 53 near Schaumburg/Woodfield. The accident occurred in the northbound local lanes, near the eastbound exit to Interstate 90. The semi-trailer truck, which apparently did not stop immediately, was closer to the entrance ramp from eastbound Interstate 90 to northbound IL-53.

One woman was critically injured and transported to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital by Schaumburg Fire Department paramedics. At least two other victims with minor injuries were transported to Northwest Community Hospital. The woman’s SUV was rear-ended by the semi-trailer at the start of the chain-reaction accident. She was rescued after about a 10-minute extrication operation while fire suppressing foam was applied to the area due to a gasoline leak.

Cook County Sheriff’s deputies and Illinois State Police are investigating the accident. Entrance ramps are blocked to northbound IL-53 at Woodfied Road frontage and Route 72 frontage. Northbound 53 at Interstate 90 was open. Northbound IL-53 is backed up more than two miles.

Wide view photo of accident at northbound IL-53 shows three vehicles and truck involved in accident Monday afternoon. Large SUV (#1), small SUV minor damage (#2), large pickup truck (#3) and semi-trailer truck (far right).

Presumably the semi-trailer truck was going a high rate of speed and hit northbound vehicles that were backed up to exit to eastbound and westbound Interstate 90. Note from the wide angle photo that the truck is about 250 to 300 feet beyond vehicle #1.
