Rockford Scanner™: Pedestrian Hit By A Vehicle in Rockford

Update: We have been told it was a fatal. So we went to work the scene.

We asked the officer on scene if it was a fatal. And he just said “it is a current investigation and couldn’t speak” so he did not confirm nor deny if it was a fatal.

With that being said, I have personally worked numerous fatal scenes over the years, and this did not appear to be a fatal accident scene. (Only a few officers, vehicles driving through where the accident scene happened at, etc…)

We were told this was a hit and run.  RPD officer wouldn’t confirm nor deny that either. Saying “it is a current investigation and couldn’t speak” so he did not confirm nor deny if it was a hit & run.  When I worked the scene, I only saw police officers. I did not see any other vehicles. So this is possibly true. But again, RPD wouldn’t confirm nor deny anything.

Sources are reporting an accident on the East side.

Around 3 am this morning, several emergency personnel were on scene of an accident that happened near 22nd st and Hunter.  

Reports are saying a pedestrian has been hit by a vehicle near this location. 

Injuries were being reported. At the time of writing this, it is not yet known on the severity of the injuries.  The cause of the accident is under investigation.
