Elgin Street Sweeper involved in rollover crash at Mount Prospect Public Works facility during Public Works Open House Saturday morning.
Mount Prospect police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 10:50 AM Saturday May 18, 2019 to a report of a street sweeper rollover Mount Prospect Public Works facility, 1700 West Central Road Mount Prospect, Il . A street sweeper was involved in a rollover crash at the Mount Prospect Public Works facility during an Open House that was held from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Police were already at the facility for an exhibit of their own at the public works facility when a yellow Elgin Street Sweeper rolled over while at an exhibit in the rear yard where the public works department was offering rides in the street sweeper. The street sweeper was rolled onto its right side or “passenger” side.
Two people were transported to Northwest Community Hospital by Mount Prospect Fire Department firefighter/paramedics in two separate ambulances. Initially there was no official information on the age or condition of the people transported to Northwest Community Hospital.
The patients transported may have had only minor injuries, or may have been transported to Northwest Community Hospital for evaluation as a precaution.
A witness at the scene, who did not want to reveal his name, said that he saw the street sweeper operating before the crash, and said he thought to himself before the crash that the street sweeper was being operated too fast for safe operation.
The yellow street sweeper, manufactured by Elgin, was uprighted by a crew from Hillside Towing using a large heavy recovery tow truck with a rotator crane.
