An employee was injured and transported to the hospital after becoming pinned between two vehicles in the service garage of a car dealership in Gurnee.

The Gurnee Police Department and Gurnee Fire Department responded around 4:50 p.m. Monday to the Gurnee Hyundai, 6251 Grand Avenue, for a report of a vehicle crash with injuries.

Gurnee Police Department Public Information Officer Shawn Gaylor said officers arrived and learned a male victim in his late 50s was injured.
