VIEWER DISCRETION: Accident investigation scene following a fatal high-speed head-on crash. A witness reported that Piotr Rog’s mother arrived at the scene and confronted police, who prevented her from approaching the Mercedes Benz within the secured accident investigation scene.

Three Arlington Heights family members were killed Thursday night by a 21-year-old driver, who also lost his life, when he drove a Mercedes Benz over 100 mph and crashed into a Chevrolet Impala on Northwest Highway near the west driveway of Lattof YMCA.

A preliminary investigation shows the driver, Piotr Rog, 21, was traveling westbound on Northwest Highway at a high rate of speed about 8:58 p.m. Thursday, February 16, 2017 when the Mercedes Benz he was driving struck an eastbound Chevrolet Impala in a left turn route into the Lattof YMCA parking lot.

The Impala was pushed 78 yards in its opposite direction (eastbound-to-westbound) about 78 yards (234 feet). Then the Impala, as its post-impact motion was decelerating, crashed at low speed into an eastbound Toyota Highlander. The Mercedes Benz came to rest in a grass parkway on the north side of Northwest Highway near an apartment complex — just a few car-lengths away from the Impala.

FIVE VICTIMS
1 dead at scene in Mercedes Benz sedan
3 from Impala pronounced dead at hospitals
1 from Mercedes listed critical at hospital

Both cars were smoking when firefighters arrived. Firefighters extinguished a fire involving the Mercedes Benz with a hose line from a fire engine (not confirmed). Crews on arrival reported five people were injured with three people entrapped. Des Plaines requested a MABAS EMS Box Alarm for multiple patients injured. Ambulances from Elk Grove Township, Mount Prospect, North Maine, Park Ridge, Prospect Heights were dispatched to the scene.

Four people were transported to two area hospitals (Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital and Northwest Community Hospital). Piotr Rog was found dead at the scene in his vehicle. Two of three family members from Arlington Heights were extricated from the Chevrolet Impala. The driver was extricated by 9:16 p.m. The front seat passenger was extricated shortly after the driver. Rog’s body was extricated in a triage operation after living patients were extricated.

The three Arlington Heights family members in the Chevrolet Impala were all pronounced dead on arrival at the hospitals — two at Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, and one at Northwest Community Hospital. Kevin Crawford died in an ambulance immediately after he was extricated from the Impala. His daughter Kirsten Crawford died at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital during CT scan. His wife Anita Crawford died at Northwest Community Hospital. The one passenger in the Mercedes Benz was transported to Level I Trauma Center Advocate Lutheran General Hospital, described in very critical condition Thursday night.

Arlington Heights residents Kevin Crawford, 52; Anita Crawford, 50; and Kirsten Crawford, 20, identities were released Friday morning. Kevin Crawford was the driver of the Chevrolet Impala. Two younger surviving children in the Crawford family, who were not involved in the crash, are in the care of their grandparents.

Piotr Rog’s identity was also released Friday morning.

Two occupants in the Toyota Highlander were treated at the scene and released with apparent minor injuries.

Northwest Highway was closed in both directions between Mount Prospect Road and Wolf Road until about 5:30 a.m. Friday for a prolonged crash investigation. Des Plaines towing service Tri-R-Service Inc. removed the wrecked vehicles.
