VIDEO: Blue Honda Civic driven off bridge northbound I-290/IL-53 onto Woodfield Road in Schaumburg.
Schaumburg police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 9:05 AM Saturday September 22, 2018 to a report of a crash with car rolled off the I-290/IL-53 bridge at 42.042979, -88.030448 (Route 53 Sb and Woodfield Rd Schaumburg ). Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report of a crash with injuries and possible entrapment after a car rolled off the I-290/IL-53 bridge over Woodfield Road.
The first crew on arrival reported the driver was out walking around vehicle. The male driver was the only person in the blue Honda Civic, which was positioned on the guardrail on the north side of Woodfield Road under I-290/IL-53.
The male driver was transported to Alexian Brothers Medical Center for evaluation because of the high forces involved in the crash.
The driver’s blue Honda Civic was resting with its rear on the guardrail, and the car was facing southbound at the north curb of Woodfield Road — perpendicular to Woodfield Road. However, it is possible that the car was northbound on I-290/IL-53 when it went over the bridge. There were scuff marks or impact marks in the eastbound lanes of Woodfield Road. Apparently, the car hit the ground in the eastbound lanes of Woodfield Road and flipped 180 degrees airborne and came to rest facing southbound near the westbound curb of Woodfield Road.
Illinois State Police are investigating.
