VIDEO: One vehicle crash off overpass of southbound Route 53 onto westbound Palatine Road.

Palatine police, Illinois State Police and Palatine firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:47 PM Tuesday to a report of a rollover crash with injuries at Route 53 and Palatine Road Palatine, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a vehicle crash involved a rollover on southbound Route 53 at Palatine Road.

Firefighters were expecting the vehicle to be up on Route 53, but discovered an overturned car in the westbound lanes of Palatine Road, just west of the overpass. The vehicle apparently was southbound on Route 53 and fell off the bridge or rolled down the embankment on the west side of Route 53, and fell upside down on the westbound lanes of Palatine Road. The vehicle may have impacted Palatine Road primarily on the front-end before rolling onto the roof upside down. The roof of the vehicle was not collapsed.

Firefighter/paramedics found one female victim inside the car and began extrication operations. Firefighters immediately stabilized the car, and charged a hose line for standby in case of fire. Firefighter/paramedics went to work on patient care, and another crew worked on extrication.

Firefighters extricated the victim by about 10:11 p.m. and transported her to Northwest Community Hospital. Firefighters also checked the embankment area for any possibility of any victim(s) ejected from the vehicle. The victim inside the vehicle was the only victim found.

Arlington Heights police blocked Palatine Road at Kennicott Drive, Illinois State Police blocked the ramp from northbound Route 53 to westbound Palatine Road, and Palatine police blocked the ramp from southbound Route 53 to westbound Palatine Road.

One witness told police that the driver was westbound on Palatine Road and drove up the ramp to southbound Route 53, but then drove down the embankment. Another witness told police the victim was actually on Route 53 for awhile after the ramp, and then came crashing down onto Palatine Road.
