From a witness: Bad accident at Bell School and State. The white car ran the red light and slammed the black car. The people in the white car fled on foot as far as we know. We stopped as we saw it happen my husband tried to catch them. The person in the black car seemed to have serious injuries and the older couple in the silver car was ok but pretty banged up.
From Rockford police: TRAFFIC ALERT: Please avoid N. Bell School Rd between State and Potawatomi/Argus. NB lanes are shut down and 1 SB lane is also closed due to a serious hit and run investigation. More info to follow as it becomes available.
