Sources were reporting a vehicle hit a pole on Montague in Rockford overnight.
A van was traveling on Montague when it left the roadway for an unknown reason and struck a secondary utility pole.
The pole was snapped and hanging at a slant.
It appears the van was traveling westbound (East on Court st) hit the pole, then went back into the roadway and into oncoming traffic, and up onto the curb and sidewalk, then back into the roadway again ending up approx. near Court st.
There was moderate to heavy damage to the front of the van. Unknown on injuries. I did not see an ambulance while I was at the scene. I saw the van, 2 RPD officers investigating and a Comed truck. A subject was in the back seat of a squad car. Unknown if they were arrested or not.
The cause of the accident is under investigation by the RPD
