VIDEO: Lake Road 5-vehicle crash just east of Ridge Avenue.

Police and firefighter/paramedics responded to several crashes on Wednesday — a day more typical of an ice storm, not a beautiful, sunny Day.

Police responded to seven or eight crashes between about 6:30 a.m. and noon. The more notable crashes were two crashes — a multi-vehicle crash on Lake Cook Road, just east of Ridge Avenue, and a three vehicle crash at Arlington Heights Road and Euclid Avenue.

Three crashes occurred right around 10:00 a.m. — one at the Lake Cook Road crash near Ridge Avenue, one at Campbell Street and Wilke Road, and one at Arlington Heights Road and and Lynwood Avenue.

Firefighter/paramedics expected multiple injuries at the Lake Cook Road crash and two rescue ambulances were dispatch. Fortunately there were no serious injuries, and there were no transports to any hospitals.

There were no injuries at the Campbell St/Wilke Road crash, and there were no injuries at the Arlington Heights Road/Lynwood Avenue Crash.

Three-vehicle crash at Arlington Heights Road and Euclid Avenue, Arlington Heights injured one person.

About 11:30 a.m. there was a report of a crash with entrapment at Arlington Heights Road and Euclid Avenue, but it was really more like a crash with one vehicle sandwiched in between two other vehicles.

One elderly female driver was injured. The drivers of two white SUVs report they were waiting at the red light on southbound Arlington Heights Road at Euclid Avenue. Both drivers headed south when the light turned green, but apparently a driver of a sedan heading eastbound on Euclid Avenue disobeyed a red light. All three vehicles crashed and ended up crunched up in the middle of the intersection. The elderly female driver removed from the sedan, and transported to Northwest Community Hospital.

Firefighter/paramedics were on the scene with a pin-in response — a ladder truck, a rescue squad, and two rescue ambulances. jFortunately extrication was not needed, and only one ambulance was used for transport.

Just have to add, people were driving mad after the crashes — not paying attention to police directions, honking at each other, wild U-turns, etc.
