RS Fan sent us the following:
“There were 2 teenage Boylan girls that were involved in a head on collision this morning around 7:45am. The driver of the other vehicle had to have been doing every bit of 50 or more in a construction zone. The light at Huffman and Riverside was turning yellow and the girls proceeded to turn when the other lady hit them, spun their car around, jumped the curb and hit the traffic light pole. Injured victims were transported to a nearby hospital”
Sources reporting an attempted kidnapping near Jefferson and Oakley in Rockford. It happened around 5:30 pm
Details are minimal, due to the police encryption.
Safe to assume the suspect got away and still roaming the streets of Rockford. RPD has yet to release information.
