On June 2nd at 3:29 am Plainfield Fire Protection District was dispatched to the scene of a two vehicle crash with injuries in the southbound lanes of I-55 near mile marker 260. While responding to the scene another vehicle crashed into the initial accident scene. Upon arrival Plainfield Fire Protection District’s ladder truck 1919 was positioned to provide lane blocking for the safety of everyone involved at the crash site. 1919 was blocking the shoulder and two lanes of traffic with warning lights activated and traffic cones directing motorists to go to the open lane to pass the crash site. While inconvenient for motorists this is done to protect everyone on the crash site. On this day, the vehicle positioning prevented a motorist from driving into the crash site where first responders were rendering aid to everyone involved in the original two crashes. A minivan drove through the traffic cones and hit the front tire of 1919, bounced off of 1919 and continued for approximately 620 feet past the original crash site and all other emergency vehicles before coming to a stop with the traffic cones still stuck underneath the vehicle. The Plainfield Fire Protection District urges motorists to please slow down and use caution when approaching and passing emergency scenes in compliance with Scott’s Law also known as the “Move Over” law. Scott’s Law was named after Lieutenant Scott Gillen of the Chicago Fire Department who was struck and killed by an intoxicated driver while assisting at a crash on the Dan Ryan Expressway. Ladder truck 1919 sustained damage and will be out of service for several weeks while undergoing inspections and repairs. The Plainfield Fire Protection District was assisted by the Bolingbrook Fire Department and the Illinois State Police.
