VIDEO: Teen crash into garage during driver’s training with Mom, Hawthorne Street and Dunton Avenue, Arlington Heights.

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:13 PM Saturday July 8, 2017 to a report of a crash with into a garage at Hawthorne Street and Dunton Avenue Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that a car crashed into a house, but the black SUV actually crashed into a detached garage at residential lot on the northwest corner of Dunton Avenue and Hawthorne Street.

Police said a 15-year-old female driver was learning how to drive with her mother Saturday afternoon. The teen driver was headed southbound on Dunton Avenue and made a right turn to head westbound on Hawthorne Street. She made a wide turn while driving the black SUV and discovered she was heading toward a pickup truck.

She overcompensated while steering right to avoid the pickup truck, jumped the curb on the north side of Hawthorne Street and crashed into the detached garage located behind a house in the block of 700 North Dunton Avenue.

No injuries were initially reported, but the female driver of the pickup truck was pregnant, and asked to be checked by paramedics.

Firefighter/paramedics responded with an extrication response, as they do when a vehicle strikes a building. A Battalion Chief, ambulance crew, squad crew, and engine company were on the scene for a short time.

The southeast corner of the detached garage was severely damaged, which prompted a request to have the on call building department inspector respond to check the structure.

Police said the teen girl, who did not yet have a license, was given citations.

About one month ago two drivers out learning to drive crashed into each other on Evergreen Avenue just south of Euclid Avenue, about two blocks south and a block east of today’s driver-in-training crash scene.
