Police, firefighters and paramedics from Arlington Heights responded about 12:37 p.m. Friday, July 30, 2021 to a report of a crash with injuries at Arlington Heights Road and Olive Street in Arlington Heights.
Upon arrival police, firefighters and paramedics discovered two vehicles with moderate to heavy damage. A black Hyundai sedan with heavy driver’s side damage and a black Toyota SUV with moderated left-front damage were involved in the 2-vehicle crash.
The male driver of the Hyundai sedan showed signs of injuries but decided not to be transported by paramedics after assessment by paramedics in the ambulance.
There was no official comment on the crash, but it appeared one of the drivers disregarded a red light and/or failed to yield oncoming traffic on a left turn to eastbound Olive Street. The driver of the Hyundai sedan with one passenger was apparently northbound on Arlington Heights when the Hyundai was hit on the driver’s side.
The female driver of the Toyota SUV was apparently southbound on Arlington Heights Road returning from a trip to pickup carryout food at Garibaldi’s near Arlington Heights Road and Rand Road.
The Speed Limit on Arlington Heights Road is 30 MPH according to a sign posted at the crash scene.
Traffic is likely increased on Olive Street due to a road closure at Thomas Street from Belmont Avenue to Dryden Avenue until mid-September. Arlington Heights Road is also involved in a road construction project until mid- to late-Fall. There were lane closures on Arlington Heights Road at the time of the crash.
The information in this article is an early report published before any summary information was confirmed or released by police or fire authorities.
