Robert Brown Jr., 75, of Palatine, was driving a 2012 Chevrolet SUV, and Tracie Steben, 19, of Lombard, was driving a 2003 Nissan Altima, Palatine Police Sgt. Kyle Ingebrigtsen said. Both had to be extricated after firefighters responded just after 5 p.m. to a report of an accident.

Brown suffered serious injuries and was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, fire officials said. Hospital staff confirmed he was still there Saturday but did not release his condition.

Steben and a 10-year-old girl who was sitting in the back seat of the Nissan Altima were transported with nonlife threatening injuries to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, officials said.

The first crew arrived within six minutes and found the two vehicles heavily damaged, according to the Palatine Fire Department. An entrapment response with additional ambulances was dispatched.

The accident was still under investigation and no citations had been issued as of Saturday, Ingebrigtsen said.

Sixteen firefighters, several pieces of equipment and three ambulances, including ones from Rolling Meadows and Palatine Rural fire departments responded.
