VIDEO: Rollover crash with extrication at Central Road and New Wilke Road, Arlington Heights.

Arlington Heights firefighter/paramedics responded about 5:10 PM Saturday to rollover crash with entrapment at Central Road and New Wilke Road Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics arrived to find a Honda in the intersection and an SUV rolled on its side about 40 yards north of the intersection.

The woman in the Toyota SUV was removed by a quick extrication rescue as the vehicle was stabilized. A woman in the Honda was also injured.

Both victims were transported to Northwest Community Hospital.

Apparently the Toyota SUV heading northbound on New Wilke Road disobeyed a red light as westbound traffic on Central Road got a green arrow. The Honda was making a left turn from westbound Central Road to southbound New Wilke Road. The Honda was hit by the SUV in the rear driver side area and spun around. The SUV continued north and rolled to it side.

Arlington Heights police are investigating the crash. The scene was cleared by about 6:10 p.m.

During the crash rescue operations, westbound Central Road was blocked to all traffic, southbound New Wilke was blocked to all traffic, northbound New Wilke Road traffic was diverted to eastbound Central Road, and eastbound Central Road was diverted to southbound New Wilke Road.
