According to police, the crash happened just before 5:30 p.m.  The car, a black Volkswagen GTI, was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed  when the driver lost control of the car.

An excerpt regarding the crash, from the October 13, 2018 Daily Herald article titled “Officials:  Driver who hit Arlington Heights police station was speeding close to 100 mph“:

Arlington Heights police say a Georgia man was driving fast — not triple digits on the speedometer, but close — when he lost control of his car Sunday night and struck a curb, benches, a fire hydrant and a mini-retaining wall before crashing into the new village police station.

The Arlington Heights Police Department is investigating this Arlington Heights car crash.
