Lake Zurich and Long Grove firefighter/paramedics responded about 4:00 a.m. Saturday to a one-vehicle crash Saturday at South Kreuger Road and Beaver Run. About 4:10 a.m. Lake Zurich Fire Rescue paramedics reported arriving to find a one-vehicle crash with a car upside down into a broken utility pole.
