CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"


VIDEO: Aftermath of truck vs. train crash at Canadian National crossing on Northwest Highway just west of North Avenue in Barrington, Illinois.

Barrington police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 6:00 PM Thursday to a train vs truck crash on the Canadian National railroad, just west Northwest Highway and North Avenue, Barrington, IL. Apparently a westbound semi-trailer truck became stuck in traffic and didn’t clear the track. The rear end of the trailer was hit and dragged in the direction of the southbound freight train. The cab or tractor of the truck was pushed into at least three vehicles that were also stuck in westbound traffic. Possibly two people in those vehicles were injured. Crews in rescue ambulances from Palatine-Rural Fire Protection District and Rolling Meadows Fire Department assisted Barrington firefighter/paramedics.

The crash caused major traffic problems for the evening rush hour. Northwest Highway was blocked in both directions between Lake Cook Road and Route 59. Westbound Lake Cook Road was backed up at least to Ela Road. Metra trains, running on totally different perpendicular tracks, were slowed for safety precautions.

The freight train also blocked Lake Zurich Road and Cuba Road. The tail end of the train was just north of Cuba Road by the Cuba Marsh. The locomotives were stopped about 150 yards southwest of the crash site. There was no word on any derailment, railroad personnel were inspecting the tracks and the train cars.

The semi-trailer was transporting items, but there were no hazardous materials reported.

An Accident Investigation Team was investigating the crash site past 8:30 p.m. Cook County Sheriff was also on the scene. Barrington Hills police assisted with traffic.

The train cleared the scene about 10:00 p.m. which means that Lake Zurich Road and Cuba Road should be open. Investigators, railroad personnel, and towing and recovery personnel remained at the scene past 10:00 p.m.
