Mitsubishi Outlander crossover SUV rolled over after crashing into a parked Ford pickup truck on Douglas Avenue, just north of Oakton Street Saturday night.

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:07 p.m. Saturday to a rollover of crash with entrapment of a crossover SUV in the 1100 block of North Douglas Avenue.

According to witnesses that helped the crash victim, the female driver was returning home from the Jewel-Osco store when she drove southbound on Douglas Avenue and drove her 2012 Mitsubishi Outlander into the oversize left-rear tire of a pickup truck that was parked at the southbound curb.

The driver of the truck was getting ready to drive away in his legally-parked Ford pickup truck. A passenger was already sitting in the pickup truck, but the driver did not yet enter the truck. When he saw the soon-to-crash crossover SUV heading southbound on Douglas Avenue going at least 40 mph, he waited at the front of his truck to clear the lane for the southbound vehicle. When the Mitsubishi Outlander passed the driveway just north of the truck, the driver of the truck bailed out a little further when he realized his truck might get hit. The crossover SUV hit the large driver’s side rear tire of the truck, stopped in its tracks, popped backwards, and rolled over to the northbound side of Douglas Avenue. According to witnesses, the pickup truck didn’t even roll forward.

The pickup truck received some driver’s side rear fender damage, a broken axle, and some damage to the driver’s side rear view mirror.

The driver of the pickup truck and other bystanders rushed to help the crossover SUV driver, who was suspended upside down in her seatbelt and covered with her deployed air bag. The driver of the pickup truck cut away the deployed air bag and spoke with the female driver.

Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived within three minutes, and rescued the woman from the vehicle. She was transported to Northwest Community Hospital. Witnesses said she was conscious and talking. Over 20 people gathered around the upside down Mitsubishi Outlander before police and firefighters arrived.

Some bystanders said there needed to be more street lights on the street. Another said speed bumps would be a good idea. A third bystander had the right idea — people need to drive more carefully. No word on whether texting or alcohol was involved.
