Rockford Scanner™: Accident With Injuries Near Loves Park




 

From a source who was involved: 
-Location: E. Riverside & N. Alpine intersection.
-Approx. 5:15pm.
-What Happened: We were driving in the far right lane on E. Riverside east bound when were struck head on by a lady making a left hand turn on a red turn light. We didn’t have time to stop, because we were already half way through the green light. She didn’t exchange a name nor insurance information with us.. It happened so fast. Our airbags deployed right when we got struck. Hers deployed after she was out of her car. Fire personnel showed up to the scene first and then RPD and ambulance showed up shortly after. Our car took a lot of damage. My husband was the driver and came out with hip and back injuries. Myself, I came out with an injured knee, bruised tailbone, really bad bruise to my underarm and scraped my neck and stomach. I am also 18 weeks pregnant, luckily no injuries or death of the unborn.. Pretty badly shaken up as this is my husband’s and I first car accident.
