Driver Jumps Curb Southbound Arlington Heights Road, Hits Tree, Lamppost

Car crash with tree and lamppost after vehicle left the road on southbound Arlington Heights Road.

An Arlington Heights police officer came upon a one-car accident about 10:40 p.m. Friday night. A sedan traveling southbound on Arlington Heights Road near Maple Street had just crashed into a tree and light pole. Apparently a female driver was distracted from driving — while getting something from her purse.

The female driver was not injured. Arlington Heights Road southbound lanes were blocked for about 35 minutes. The car rested on the parkway and a lamp post with live wires also rested on the parkway just west of the southbound lanes of Arlington Heights Road. A medium size tree was also snapped at its base.
