UPDATE: Police are working the scene and were not available to provide any information.
What I can confirm from what I saw on scene, numerous police officers on scene, NPFD, County Highway, Rock Valley PD, WCSO, Crime Scene unit, etc…
One vehicle has a tarp on it. Safe to assume that is the vehicle that has the fatality in it. Witnesses said the White SUV/Truck ran the red light and T-Boned the other vehicle.
Their were reports of up to 5 vehicles involved, but I only saw only 2 vehicles when I was a t the scene.
The driver of the truck got out and tried to flee the scene on foot but a bystander tackled the man. He told the other male in the truck to run. That is believed to be a boy around 12 years old, possibly the drivers son.
I can confirm police are searching the area for someone. So it is safe to assume it is the 12 year old boy, the father told to run from the scene. Witnesses said that driver smelled of alcohol.
Reports of the victim that passed away is possibly female.
We will post updates if the police release an official statement. In the meantime, avoid the area.
