A 29-year-old man was flown by a Flight For Life helicopter to the hospital after a vehicle he was working on fell down and crushed him at a repair shop in Huntley, police said.

The Huntley Police Department and Huntley Fire Protection District responded around 3:45 p.m. Monday to R&R Truck Repair, 11414 Smith Drive, for a report of a technical rescue.

Huntley Deputy Police Chief Michael Klunk said that a 29-year-old man, who was working as an employee for the business, had been crushed underneath a vehicle.

The employee had been working on the vehicle when it fell on him. Other employees used a forklift to remove the vehicle off the man before firefighters arrived, Klunk said.

The man was transported by a Huntley ambulance to Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital where he was subsequently flown by a Flight For Life helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
