Source said he witnessed a vehicle excessively speeding (Possibly over 100 mph) when the accident happened. A Silver vehicle possibly a Sanata  hit a Jeep. 

They said this appears that it may have originated as a police chase, then turned into an auto accident.  Witnesses said someone tried to flee the scene on foot after the accident, but officers were able to stop them.

RPD says a Silver car and a Gray SUV were northbound on Alpine when the car rear-ended the SUV.  The driver of the SUV was the one who passed away on scene.  Passenger of the car was transported to the hospital with life threatening injuries, and the driver of the car was transported with non life threatening injuries.  They said speed was a factor in the accident.

Rockford Scanner™: Editorial By Tanker, American Press: Enemy of the People





Email your tips and photo to us at RockfordScanner@Gmail.com


As you know we do editorials from our fans. Below is another one from Tanker

The progressives and the press are trying to railroad this kid.  They say he was “hateful, disrespectful, taunting” toward this drumming Indian that got in his face.  If there is one single scrap of video showing ANY bad behavior by that kid, I haven’t seen it!!  The a-hole press is in total progressive lying spin mode on this one.  They hate the guts of ordinary Americans.  They despise us.  This is infuriating!
