Exterior wall boarded up Thursday after crash Wednesday night when chase vehicle went straight through T-intersection at Rev Morrison Drive and Elk Grove Boulevard.

Elk Grove Village police responded about 10:49 PM Wednesday to a vehicle chase involving other police agencies that was in Elk Grove Village and ended in a crash at Grove Jr High School, 777 West Elk Grove Boulevard Elk Grove Village, IL. Elk Grove Village police reported that a vehicle was inside the school building. Initially there was a report that a person fled on foot, and that police were setting up a perimeter. Then about 10:53 p.m. police advised a female/driver was conscious and alert, and that is was safe for paramedics to enter the school. Police reported a “tremendous amount of damage” to the school. A hallway in the school was totally obstructed by the vehicle and damage.

Roselle police and Illinois State Police were involved in the police pursuit, which entered Elk Grove Village traveling eastbound on Biesterfield Road. The pursuit started after a Cook County Sheriff’s deputy witnessed a hit-and-run car vs. fence crash. Cook County terminated the pursuit or lost the vehicle, but Hanover Park police discovered the vehicle and a chase resumed.

Building maintenance was requested at the scene but no extra alarm fire department response for structural collapse was requested.

About 11:11 p.m. firefighters reported a light haze in the main hallway of the school with a smell of something burning. The driver was removed from the vehicle about 11:18 p.m. and transported to a local hospital. At that point firefighters concentrated their efforts on shutting off the vehicle, and ventilating carbon monoxide out of the school. Firefighters also isolated electric power and water from the affected area.

JF Kennedy Boulevard was blocked at Cypress, and Elk Grove Boulevard was blocked at Ridge Avenue. No word on arrests or charges applied to the driver, and no word on any person at large. It is unknown if any police agency arrested any other persons or passengers related to this case.

Students are on Spring Break this week.
