Police and firefighter/paramedics from Buffalo Grove responded about 9:10 a.m. Thursday, February 13, 2020 to a report of a crash with injuries involving a downed light pole. The reported crash involved a Mazda, a Toyota and a light pole.

Engine 27’s crew on arrival reported vehicles with minor damage with a light pole down across the westbound lanes just west of the Aboretum Club. Traffic was backing up in both directions near the crash scene. Eastbound traffic was backed up past Buffalo Grove Road and appeared to have a worse back up compared to westbound traffic.

There were two medical refusals at the scene, therefore no paramedic transports.
