Rockford Scanner™: A good Samaritan saves a man from a burning vehicle in Rockford





A good Samaritan saves a man from a burning vehicle in Rockford.

It happened on 1st st in Rockford around 2:30 am this morning.

RS Source Shawn A. said he heard a vehicle that was revving its engine. The vehicle then caught on fire. He saw the brake lights on, so he knew the vehicle was occupied. The male victim inside the car was screaming for help. Shawn broke out the window of the vehicle and was able to successfully rescue the man inside the burning car.  The man was transported a nearby hospital, for evaluation.  The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Kaseniya Kaseniya said:  “South first st. The guy in the car fell asleep with his foot on the the gas peddle. The doors were locked and there was the smoke inside and out, also car was about to explode so guys had to bust the window fest to get him out and so one of the guys got his arm injured. The “victim” walked away mad about his vehicle without injuries. Few more min and all the cars around would be damaged from the explosion”

Note:   While I was working the scene, the Rockford Police came rushing to the scene with lights and sirens, after the fire was already extinguished.  So it is unknown if something else happened at the scene, that I am unaware of.

On Thursday, January 24, 2019, shortly after 2:00 p.m., Rockford Police officers responded to the intersection of West State Street and Pierpont Avenue for a two-vehicle crash.

Upon arrival, officers learned a red car, traveling southbound on Pierpont Avenue, ran a red light.

The car then collided with a burgundy minivan, traveling eastbound on West State Street.

The driver of the car, a 24-year-old female, and two adult male occupants of the minivan were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

It is believed at this time that alcohol likely played a role in the accident.


It happened around 2:10 pm today near the area of W State and Pierpont.

There is an auto accident near this location.

A vehicle is on fire and someone is trapped inside the vehicle.

Several emergency personnel are en route.

UPDATE: No fire. Three ambulances dispatched.
