Upon arrival command requested additional engines and ambulances advising two tools going to work for multiple extrications.

Within 5 minutes in command requested an ambulance box and additional engines and squads for extrication. A total of 6 additional ambulances responded along with special requests for a Lyons Squad and Loyola Life Flight.

It is unknown to me which car the fatal was involved, but one could guess.

All companies remained on scene for at least an hour.
