Good morning everyone. I wanted to remind everyone there are two events this morning that involves several people walking and running.
The first event is the Pink Heals Winnebago 3rd Annual 5K Fun Run/Walk. That is being held at Martin Park at 8am. http://www.pinkhealswinnebago.org/
The other is a road race that is starting at 9 am Paws for a Cause 5K Race. It is a 5k road race. Which means there will probably be a lot of people on or near the roads nearby. It starts at Sportscore One on Elmwood at 9am. I was unable to find a map of their route.
At 4:40 pm on 6-29-2018, the Coroner’s Office was contacted and informed of a traffic collision at the 4300 block of Owen Center Rd in Rockford.

Due to encryption, details are very limited.

Please check back for more details. Also avoid the area at this time.
