RPD: Eastbound Harrison Avenue between 20th Street and Ohio Parkway is shutdown due to slick conditions and numerous accidents. Use caution at the North Second/Spring Creek interchanges as that area is also extremely slick. Drive slowly and carefully this morning!


We all knew it was coming.  The first snow fall, brings a lot of accidents.

Several accidents are being reported all over the area.

The worst ones are on the bypass  and also business 20, I-39 and also on I-90. Other roads that are being reported that are very slick: Caledonia road, N Second, Perryville, Harrison, Mulford, Bridge st, N Main, RT 75, Pretty much every main road is slick this morning via RS fan reports.

Several cars in the ditches, some have rolled over.  Extrication was needed at a one of the scenes,  at Montague and 20.

Injuries have been reported, but I have yet to hear any life threatening injuries. Sounds like most are non life threatening injuries.

Please allow extra time to travel this morning, drive slow and safe

Another violent day in the city of Rockford and surrounding areas.

Sources told us about a shooting victim at Swedish American Hospital. Unknown if the shooting took place at the hospital or the victim was shot at a different location and then transported there.

Sources also told us about the Advanced Auto on Auburn that was robbed.

We tried to get information from the police, they said “No comment”

No suspect information on any of these calls. Safe to assume none have been captured and are still roaming the area.

But we can confirm these via the police call logs.


UPDATE from the RPD:

On Tuesday October 30, 2018 at 7:12pm, Rockford Officers responded to Advance Auto Parts located at 3019 Auburn St in reference to an aggravated robbery.  The suspect implied he had a weapon and demanded money from the clerk whom complied.  The suspect fled out to the parking lot, got into a vehicle, and drove away eastbound on Auburn St.  There were customers inside of the business during the incident but no injuries were reported.

This is an on-going investigation.  Anyone with information regarding this case is encouraged to contact the Rockford Police Department at (815) 966-2900 or Rockford Area Crime Stoppers at (815) 963-7867.
