Rockford Scanner™: Dash Camera Video Of An Accident Near Roscoe

Source Jennifer Ames sent us a video of an accident caught on video near Roscoe around 6:30 pm on Thursday night.  You can watch the video below.

Jennifer had a dash camera in her vehicle.

She were headed Northbound on N Second (251) and was in the turn lane at Hononegah when the accident happened.

The lady in front of Jennifer put her vehicle into reverse and hit the gas, running into Jennifer’s vehicle. Then the person in the vehicle then pulls forward and gets out of the vehicle.  When doing so, she forgot to put the vehicle into park. The vehicle then rolls forward hitting another vehicle.

Editors Note:  This is why we really recommend everyone owning a dash camera. A camera never lies and tells the whole story without any lies or variations. Please invest into a dash camera, you never know what you might catch on camera or it tell your side of the story if anything ever happens.
