A driver had to be extricated after his minivan rolled several times on Lockport Street Monday afternoon.


Plainfield Deputy Fire Chief Jon Stratton said the crash happened around 4 p.m. on Lockport Street about 1/4-mile west of Steiner (Drauden) Road. Stratton said the van rolled over multiple times before coming to rest in a ditch.

Stratton said it took about 12 minutes to extricate the man, who was airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in fair condition.

According to an Illinois State Police spokeswoman, a second vehicle was also involved in the crash. She said police were still on the scene late Monday afternoon, and no additional details were immediately available.
