UPDATE: An 86-year-old man has passed away after being hit by a car in a Walmart parking lot.
Conflicting reports of it being a hit and run accident. Police haven’t officially said.
RS Fan Stephanie Andrade “It was fatal it was a senior citizen, car pulled out and ran him over and fled the scene.”
Several fans are saying a person was hit at the Walmart on Northridge just after 3:30 pm today. The vehicle that hit the person fled the scene, some RS fans are saying (Some are saying the vehicle is still on scene).
Fans were reporting they were doing CPR on the victim, then the police put a white sheet over the body.
As you know the RPD are encrypted, and they have yet to release information. So much for police transparency once again………….We want to thank the RS fans who sent us the information and photos. Keep up the good work. An informed community, is a safe community.
After we posted this, the RPD posted: Rockford PD are responding to an auto vs. pedestrian accident, with life-threatening injuries, in the parking lot of Wal-Mart located at 3849 Northridge Drive.
