Five Injured In Suburban Chicago Car Accident

On Wednesday afternoon five people, including two children, were injured in a three vehicle accident in Elk Grove Village, Illinois, according to the Sun-Times News Group. The accident happened on Nerge Road just west of Rohlwing Road when a 2002 Jeep Cherokee entered a left turn lane driving too fast for conditions and rear-ended a 2001 Toyota Corolla. The Corolla was then knocked forward into a Ford Windstar minivan. The Jeep was moving fast enough that it reportedly flipped over and landed on top of the Corolla.

Four involved in the accident were taken to Alexian Brothers Medical center in Elk Grove Village. The fifth person was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights. All five have been treated and released and all five were wearing their seatbelts.

It has not been reported if traffic citations have been issued. The crash remains under investigation.
