Around 11:10 pm tonight several emergency personnel were dispatched for a rollover accident in the area of Newburg and Belvidere rd. Scanner traffic is saying there is a pick up truck rolled over. Unknown on injuries.
Note: The roadways are becoming ice. Many accidents on the scanner.
City officials have said the plows are out, doing the Arterial Routes. Meaning An arterial road or arterial thoroughfare is a high-capacity urban road. The primary function of an arterial road is to deliver traffic from collector roads to freeways or expressways, and between urban centres at the highest level of service possible
But many fans are reporting via social media they see the plows out, but none are plowing or throwing salt down when they saw the plows.
The Rockford Fire Department told the plows to get out and assist them, after an ambulance was stuck. http://rockfordscanner.com/2016/12/ambulance-stuck-in-the-snow-in-rockford/
