The crash occurred when two vehicles collided about 6:05 p.m. at Rand Road and Golf Road, according to Des Plaines police.

The second vehicle was hit on the passenger side and drove off the road. All three passengers were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
The driver was extricated from the vehicle by the Des Plaines Fire Department and taken to Lutheran General Hospital with life threatening injuries, police said.

Police said there was no indication that either driver was impaired or intoxicated.
The intersection remained closed while the crime scene was being investigated, police said.
The names of the victims were not yet released pending notification of family members. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed the deaths Monday morning.
