Rockford Scanner®: Pedestrian hit by a vehicle near a local bridge

  • by


Sources are reporting a pedestrian has been hit by a vehicle.

It happened just before 2 AM near the Harlem bridge in Machesney Park. 

The victim is reported to be on or near the bridge. They had the MD-1 unit en route to the scene along with several other emergency personnel.

Sources have told us the injuries are possibly severe but officials have not yet confirmed this.

The area will probably be closed down for a while so you want to avoid the area or expect delays.

First responders are reporting the roadways are very slick, due to the weather conditions

This is still developing, check back later for possible updates
