OFPD responds to two rollover car accidents

There were two roll-over crashes in the District Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017. 

The first occurred about 5:45 this morning, 01/21/17, in the 15200 block of La Grange Rd. One vehicle was involved and rolled over after striking the median. The single occupant removed himself from the vehicle prior to our arrival. The driver was taken to Silver Cross Hospital with minor injuries. 

The second occurred in the Westbound lanes of 159th St. West of 84th Ave. at about 2:45pm. There were two vehicles involved with one of them ending up on its roof. 

The driver and the passenger of the rolled vehicle removed themselves prior to fire dept. arrival with one of them transported to Palos Hospital with minor injuries. The second occupant and two people in the other car refused treatment and transport at the scene. 

Westbound traffic was diverted for about an hour until the car was up-righted and removed by the tow truck.
