Two juveniles were transported to a hospital after they crashed into a backyard of a home in Huntley and their car became fully engulfed in flames Thursday afternoon.
The Huntley Police Department and Huntley Fire Protection District responded at 2:36 p.m. Thursday to the 1200 block of Sinnett Street in Huntley for a report of a vehicle fire.
Huntley Fire Protection District Battalion Chief Mike Pierce told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that emergency crews arrived and learned a vehicle driving on Ackman Road left the roadway.
The vehicle hit a street light and landscaping and cable boxes before coming to a rest in the backyard of a home.
The car was occupied by two juveniles.
Both escaped with minor injuries and the car was fully engulfed in flames when emergency crews arrived, Pierce said.
Firefighters deployed one hose line to extinguish the fire.
Paramedics transported both juveniles to Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital, Pierce said.
ComEd was called to the scene to handle power outages in the area caused by the crash.
According to the ComEd outage map, less than five residents were affected and crews are working to restore power by around 11 p.m. Thursday.
The Huntley Public Works and Engineering Department was also called to assess storm drains in the area and ensure there were no hazards due to fuel leaking from the car, Pierce added.
