At 05:07 on Saturday, May 1 Prospect Heights and Wheeling firefighter/paramedics were dispatched to an auto accident with preports of persons possibly trapped on eastbound Palatine Road near Wolf. First arriving units found a minivan on fire and at least two other cars involved. The fire and other vehicles were located just east of the Canadian National rail road bridge. A Superior ambulance traveling in the area came across the crash before firefighters arrived and began checking for injuries. None one was transported to the hospital despite the damage to the vehicles involved.
