Rockford Scanner™: Accident On the East Side, 4 Shots Heard Just Prior To The Accident




Update from a source: “Baby from accident is fine resting ,in a little pain with some bumps bruises”


Sources are reporting an accident on the East side.
With possible shots fired just prior to the accident.
4 shots were heard just prior to the accident.

It happened just before 2:30 am this morning near 12th ave and 25th st.

Initial reports said a car vs building, back of the school. An infant was involved and the infant was not breathing and the infant was bleeding.

The mother and infant left while emergency personnel were trying to do an assessment at the scene. Transported to a local ER via her own vehicle.


Admin Will went to the scene to work the story and he has worked several fatals over the years as well. And he said it did not appear to be a fatal. And he did not see any buildings hit.  He said it appeared to be only a traffic accident from what he saw at the scene.

He did say that police were on 12th ave and 23rd st, and someone was in the back seat of the squad car. So this possibly might of been an accident where the occupant fled, and police caught the occupant.

He said the vehicle crashed into a ditch area near 25th st and 12th ave, and into a part of a baseball diamond fence.

He said he did not see any evidence markers laying anywhere, so the shots fired is unconfirmed.  But several sources have reported the gunshots.

Police have yet to release any information on the incident.
