Rockford Scanner™: Vehicle Fire, Medical Needed. Police Chase On The East Side

  • by

Thank you Sheriff David Ernest for the update:


 Sources are reporting a scene on the East side. 

The scenes happened just before 5 am this morning.

Reports of a vehicle on fire and medical is needed at the scene, at Perryville and Garrett ln.
That is just North of State st. (Perryville/State)

There are reports of a police chase in the area around the same time. Approx. 15 police officers were chasing a vehicle through the Cherry Valley area and around State and Perryville. (We have been told these scenes are connected, but not confirmed yet)

We have been told, but officials have not confirmed it yet.
That there was a police chase and during the chase the vehicle crashed and a vehicle caught on fire.
But that is not confirmed right now.

You want to avoid the area for awhile. Check back later for possible updates.
