On Wednesday morning, just before 8:00 a.m., two vehicles collided at Waukegan Rd. and the exit ramp of the Tri-State Tollway, causing three persons to be transported to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
According to witnesses, one car was traveling south on Waukegan Rd. as another was attempting to turn north on Waukegan from the exit ramp when the collision occurred.
Two Northbrook ambulances and one ambulance from Deerfield transported the three patients to Highland Park Hospital. Northbrook paid-on-call firefighters were called on to staff an additional ambulance during the incident.

Northbrook Youth Commission Visits Lake Cook Terrace
In lieu of their regular meeting, the Youth Commission visited Lake Cook Terrace, a residential rehabilitation and nursing center, on Wednesday evening to spread some holiday cheer. Youth Commission members shared treats, made arts and crafts and sang some favorite holiday carols with the residents.
The Lake Cook Terrace visit is a much-anticipated annual outing for the Youth Commission and is open to anyone who would like to join. Residents always ask for a return visit and request that the Youth Commission doesn't wait a whole year. The next regular meeting of the Youth Commission is scheduled for January 16, 2013.
