    Lots of squads heading north on Park on December 20?

    Hi - wondering if anyone knows what happened? Driving home tonight from the train, around 5:50 pm, counted at least three squads, an ambulance and a fire truck going north on Park toward downtown? Thanks.

    It was something going on by the 7-11, but I have no other details

    Multi-vehicle accident at Five Corners. Apparently one of the vehicles rolled twice. I hear injuries are not serious.

    Must of been a staged accident by Protect Glen Ellyn to show how dangerous the intersection is...

    Watched the aftermath for a few minutes - many firetrucks, lights and ambulance. It was at Elm, not 5 corners per se. 1-2 cars on side/roof. Needed an ax and I think jaws of life at some point. Clerk in 7/11 stated he missed it but stood there in the aftermath. Had no clue how my car slipped into that mess so i was stuck to go around after my trip to 7/11. They block 5 corners after I slipped in. The 7/11 guy stated major speeders in that zone, even when it's 20 MPH during day for school. It's a problem. I remember years back I was passed in that school zone by some tool as I was going to work in am, doing 20 MPH, as the kids were being escorted by the crossing guard.

    Was it really staged? That was a good exercise then. Even the poles were down. 20171220_180519.jpg

    Agree, I go through that intersection quite a bit, itís scary how drivers fly through there. Hint, hint GEPD.
