The alleged suspect
This afternoon a vehicle had crashed near E State and Fairview. A citizen approached the crashed vehicle to assist the victim and the man was passed out at the wheel. They said it appeared to have been a person possibly DUI. When the citizen approached to help the person, the person that was passed out then woke up and fled westbound on State. The subject allegedly threw out a bag of something onto State st and was driving into oncoming traffic on State st. Police were able to capture the person in the area of the gum factory on Forest Hills.
Update: After we posted this, Rockford Scanner fan Karen Crabb said: “He hit two more cars on 20th street, mine was one of them, he just kept driving then turned around and passed us and went down a different street, he was coming at us head on we tried to get out of the way. He looked like he was sleeping at the wheel, I think he did a hit and run on 3 or 4 cars”
