Two men were killed, including a firefighter, and three critically injured early Saturday when their vehicles struck an oil pipeline in New Lenox Township, officials said.
At 2:05 a.m., Will County sheriff’s police and New Lenox firefighters responded to the explosion of an Enbridge Energy pipeline in an industrial park east of Schoolhouse Road and south of Old Plank Road Trail, reports said.
A Ford Mustang with two people inside and an SUV with three occupants were apparently side by side when they went through a chain link fence and traveled approximately 125 feet onto the property before striking the pipeline, igniting the crude oil inside.
