Police, firefighters and paramedics from Arlington Heights responded about 4:51 p.m. Monday, June 19, 2023 to a report of a rollover crash with injuries at Euclid Avenue and Haddow Avenue in Arlington Heights. A Prospect Heights ambulance was first due, but a nearby Arlington Heights ambulance became available, and both ambulances remained assigned to the call.
The first fire crew on arrival discovered a vehicle on the driver’s side just south of the intersection — one of two vehicles with moderate to severe damage. No tools, or only limited tools, were required for extrication in either vehicle.
The female driver of a red Ford Escape was transported by Arlington Heights Fire Department paramedics to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights. The occupants of the Nissan Armada declined transportation by paramedics.
The crash affected rush hour traffic on Euclid Avenue and on Haddow Avenue. Euclid traffic was blocked in both directions between Belmont Avenue and Douglas Avenue. Haddow Avenue was blocked at the intersection, and was also blocked at Fremont Street from the south.
Apparently the female driver of the red Ford Escape was eastbound on Euclid Avenue. Evening rush hour traffic on westbound Euclid Avenue was backed up at least to Haddow Avenue, and the westbound vehicles blocked visibility of eastbound Euclid Avenue traffic. The male driver of a blue Nissan Armada apparently stopped at the stop sign for southbound Haddow Avenue before Euclid Avenue, and then entered the intersection; and the Nissan Armada was hit near the center of the passenger side. The force caused the large SUV to roll to the driver’s side, and slide along Haddow Avenue south of the intersection before coming to rest near the curb. There was at least one child passenger in the Armada.
