Three Minivans Crash at Arlington Heights Road and Hawthorne


Arlington Heights firefighters standby with a handline (hose) while Hillside Towing prepares to separate minivans for towing.

Only minor injuries in a three-car accident at Arlington Heights Road and Hawthorne Avenue about 7:30 a.m. A minivan southbound on Arlington Heights Road apparently made a left turn in front of a minivan that was northbound on Arlington Heights Road. The impact and momentum of that crash carried the two minivans into a third minivan that was waiting at a stop sign on westbound Hawthorne, just east of Arlington Heights Road. The original southbound minivan was sandwiched and turned on its side between the other two minivans.

Only minor injuries reported and no victims were transported to the hospital.
