Just before 2 am this morning several emergency personnel were responding to a serious accident in Rockford.
It happened in the 1100 block of 11th st on Rockford’s East side.
Extrication was being requested, to help cut someone out of a vehicle that is trapped.
Multiple injuries are being reported. Two ambulances and the extrication team have been dispatched.
UPDATE: Three ambulances. Extrication was complete at 2:33 am
Note: Unknown if it is related, but there are reports of a couple gunshots in the same area, then the crash happened. Then they heard a vehicle speed away from the accident scene. RPD is encrypted, so we can not confirm this.
Unconfirmed: But via our scene photos and what RS admin Will saw at the scene, it appears this might be the same vehicle ~ http://rockfordscanner.com/2018/05/16/rockford-scanner-rs-fan-has-her-vehicle-stolen-in-rockford/
RS fan Alicia C. asked if we could post about her stolen vehicle on RS, so the public could help search for it. She had her vehicle stolen earlier tonight near Broadway and 25th. And it appears it might be the same vehicle, but not confirmed. RPD has yet to release information
