SHARE Two injured in rollover semi crash in Long Grove

Two people were injured when a semi truck rolled onto its roof in the northwest suburbs Wednesday afternoon.

The semi truck rolled over on Lake Cook Road just east of Route 53 in Long Grove about 2:40 p.m., according to a statement from the Long Grove Fire Department.

Emergency crews arrived three minutes later and found two people trapped inside the truck. A dog was also running around outside the truck, fire officials said.

The driver was awake and able to speak. The passenger, though breathing, was unconscious, according to fire officials.

The two were freed from the truck about 15 minutes later. The driver was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, while the passenger was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening, fire officials said.

The dog was also later captured by police.

The crash remains under investigation by the Illinois State Police.
