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

Thanksgiving was a day for cars into buildings — reports from Murray, Utah; Arlington Heights, Illinois; and Chicago, Illinois.

1. Citizen Rescue

Josh Romney, son of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, has reported via Twitter that he rescued four people to safety in a car vs house crash in Murray, Utah in Salt Lake County.

The crash occurred about 8:20 p.m. Thursday when the driver missed the off-ramp from an exit off I-215 in Murray, Utah. No injuries were reported.

Josh Romney: Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.f

Josh Romney is Mitt and Ann Romney’s third oldest.

2. Firefighters save house from explosion

In Arlington Heights, Illinois, police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:30 PM Thanksgiving to a report of crash with injuries at Kennicott Avenue and Maude Avenue. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a car was driven into a house, and that the driver was fleeing on foot away from the crash scene.

A neighbor or guest spending time with family for Thanksgiving across the street followed the driver on foot and encouraged him to return to the scene. The house that was hit is located on the northeast corner of Kennicott Avenue and Maude Avenue. The driver was walked back to the scene — accompanied by police — from the west side of Kennicott Avenue.

The driver, a male in his 20s, was apparently not seriously injured, but neighbors believed he was highly intoxicated. He was transported to Northwest Community Hospital. A neighbor said the car was skidding almost 100 yards before hitting the house — crossing diagonally across Kennicott Avenue while southbound toward Maude Avenue. No injuries were reported inside the house.

When the car hit the house, a gas line to a gas furnace was severed. A heavy odor of gas filled the house and filled the outside area of the house. Firefighters shut of the gas at the meter, and quickly ventilated the house before the gas could ignite and destroy the house.

Several families were at the scene, after interrupting their gatherings to see what the loud noises and commotion were all about.

A Village of Arlington Heights Building Inspector arrived on the scene to inspect for structural damage.

3. One Gets Away

On the south side of Chicago the driver of a Chrysler 300 crashed into a Nissan Altima with two people inside. The Chrysler 300 kept on going into a building on the corner of 59th Street and Washtenaw Avenue. The driver jumped out of the Chrysler 300 and fled from the scene. A 20-year-old man was injured in the Nissan and transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Christ Medical Center. A 52-year-old female was also injured in the Nissan Altima, and was transported to Holy Cross Hospital.

Police were looking for Chrysler 300 driver Thanksgiving night.
