Anyone have info on the accident that shut down orchard for hours last night? There were tons of emergency vehicles and helicopters. Orchard was shut down from Galena Rd. over the bridge to Mill. Any info??

My daughter was coming home last night and said a car was coming up in back of her going about 80 mph and passed her near the bridge, then a squad car passed her and then 4 more police cars were chasing that car then all of a sudden a semi truck was jack knived on top of the bridge, she thinks the car must have hit the semi. A few minutes later all kinds of ambulences arrived, then a helecopter was flying pretty low and seemed to not be able to land and finally landed in that pay and park lot and an ambulence drove to the helecopter. My daugter stopped at the top of the bridge and couldn't really go anywere for about an hour, it was hard to see because it was raining out and bright lights were everywhere. That's about all we know, I'm suprised we didn't see anything on the news yet

Thanks for that info, I looked everywhere and couldn't find anything, when I spoke with my daughter last night she did say that the car going about 80 mph was some sort of an suv and that the police were chasing it, it sort of looked like some kind of chase scene you would see in a movie.

Yes, my daughter said the helicopter was really low and close to her car, it was really scary for her

My wife and I with our two kids saw a truck hit a car, causing the truck to land upside down in the lane going opposite direction next to us. It was on orchard just north of 30. Anyone know what happened or if there were any injuries?
