A driver of a four-door Toyota Corolla struck a tree about 10:35 p.m. Friday on Buffalo Grove Road near Aptakisic Road in Buffalo Grove.

Buffalo Grove Police closed Buffalo Grove Road in both directions while fire department members worked to extricate the trapped driver, who was the lone occupant of the vehicle, officials said in a news release.


Emergency crews removed the driver, stabilized the individual and transported the person to the Level One Trauma Center at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville. The driver is listed in serious condition, the release said.

Prior to emergency personnel arriving, bystanders attempted to assist the individual, but heavy front-end damage and crushed doors limited what they could do, the release said.

Meanwhile, Arlington Heights police reported extricating the driver of a Toyota Scion following a rollover accident early Saturday near Algonquin Road and Tonne Drive.

The accident occurred about 1:44 a.m. and involved the Scion and a Honda Odyssey van, police said. Both drivers received medical treatment for nonlife-threatening injuries. One of the drivers was subsequently released from the hospital, authorities said. The investigation into the cause of the accident continues, police said.
