Car crash with fire in Long Grove

I was visiting a fire station today in Buffalo Grove (IL) when they were sent to a traffic crash. It was a car crash with fire in Long Grove, the next town over. The car struck a parked semi and caught fire while the unconscious driver was trapped. I responded to the scene with Buffalo Grove Quint 27 and got a few images. The fire was contained and the driver was freed in short order.

I have some images … with a gallery at
