Firefighters discovered one person on the ground. The crash possibly involved a tow truck, a taxi cab, and one other vehicle.

Minutes after arrival firefighters reported they had and extrication operation underway and requested a second ambulance and another fire engine for additional personnel for the extrication operation. Five ambulances were eventually called to the scene with two staging off of the Tollway for a part of the rescue operation.

One person was pronounced dead at the scene. Three crash victims were transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital. A fourth victim was transported to Highland Park Hospital. The four people transported had non-life-threatening injuries.
