WEST DUNDEE, Ill. (CBS) -- Four vehicles, including a fire truck, were involved in a crash Friday afternoon in West Dundee.

At 1:49 p.m., a West Dundee ladder truck was stopped in traffic at Route 72 and Carrington Drive, when a sport-utility vehicle crossed the center median and hit two other SUVs—then the fire truck.

The accident victims' injuries were not life-threatening, according to the Village of West Dundee. All fire personnel were evaluated, but none were hospitalized.

The fire truck was returning from a call at the time of the accident, according to the West Dundee fire chief.
