Description of Incident:

On June 18th at 9:11 pm, a Sunday night (Fathers Day), we responded to a vehicle crash involved a near head-on collision with a box truck versus full-size SUV. Both vehicles ended up off the roadway with the box truck heavily embedded into the woods. The drivers of both vehicles were trapped and had to be extricated, and an additional six patients needed care. La Grange Park Firefighters were assigned the box truck extrication. Although a heavy wrecker was requested and a winch systems was being set up to be able to move the truck somewhat to provide needed access for extrication, La Grange Park Firefighters were able to use our AMKUS rescue system to free the driver prior to needing to do such. In total, six ambulances transported 8 patients to three different hospitals.
