Two children, who were properly restrained in child seats, were uninjured after a two-vehicle crash left their car overturned in Cary Tuesday, fire officials said.
The Cary Fire Protection District responded around 12 p.m. Tuesday to a two-vehicle crash outside of their fire station #1 at 400 Cary Algonquin Road in Cary.
Cary Fire Protection District Spokesman Alex Vucha said firefighters responded quickly and found one vehicle on its roof and another vehicle with minor front-end damage.
There were a total of four patients, including two children.
Firefighters safely removed the children, who were properly restrained in the backseat of the rolled-over vehicle, Vucha said.
All patients were evaluated and were not injured.
Properly installed child seats are believed to have prevented injury to the children, Vucha said.
Officials highly recommend parents and guardians get their child seats checked for proper installation.
The Cary Police Department and McHenry County Sheriff’s Office have certified technicians who install car seats, Vucha said.
Cary Algonquin Road was closed in both directions for nearly 40 minutes while emergency crews worked on the scene.
The crash remains under investigation by the Cary Police Department.
