VIDEO: Jeep Liberty and Mini Cooper S stuck together after collision in the Sunday parking lane of Arlington Heights Road for St. James Church.
Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:30 AM Sunday to a crash with air bag deployment in the block of 700 North Arlington Heights Road Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a vehicle hit a parked car in the northbound curb lane of Arlington Heights Road. The driver of a Jeep Liberty hit a Mini Cooper S, which pushed into a Kia sedan. The Mini Cooper and Kia sedan were parked in the right lane, which is permitted on Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The driver was not injured, and apparently no people were in the parked vehicles, but firefighter/paramedics responded because of the air bag activation.
Recovery crews from Hillside Towing had a little trouble because the Jeep Liberty and the Mini Cooper S were stuck together after the crash. Both vehicles were secured by two flat bed tow trucks and pulled away from each other. Police took car to make sure people cleared the area near sidewalk in case an debris went flying during the separation.
Traffic was slightly delayed as the roadway down to one lane in both directions was occasionally blocked totally to maneuver the tow vehices. The road way was cleared by about 11:30 a.m.
