Rockford Scanner™: Serious Accident At The Wreck-It-Round-A-Bout

Sources are reporting a serious accident at the Wreck-It-Round-A-Bout. 

A White vehicle has crashed into a pole near the NE corner of the Wreck-It-Round-A-Bout (Auburn & Main)

A female was injured and was unconscious and trapped under the dash of the vehicle. Extrication was needed to get her out of the vehicle.

An empty car seat was inside the vehicle, so emergency personnel are unsure if a small child was in the vehicle or not. They were searching the area.

RFD was able to get the female victim out of the vehicle and transported her to a local E.R.,  she was alive   but has life threatening injuries according to officials.

The cause of the accident is under investigation.

Rockford Scanner™: Two Pedestrians Hit By One Vehicle in Rockford


RPD talked to WTVO but refused to talk to Rockford Scanner.  We called the media line, the man on the other end did not identify himself and said he wasn’t going to release any information to us.

So we can only run the information that IS provided to us. And that is a White vehicle hit 2 pedestrians near the Mcdonalds on W Riverside.  One victim has died. He is approx 25 years old. The other s in serious condition. He is approx 40 years old.  We were told by witnesses the white vehicle hit the 2 pedestrians, dragging one of the victims for some length, before pulling over into the parking lot of the Mcdonalds.  We can confirm the blood on the pavement where the initial impact was, was some distance to where the victim ended up. The victims shoe was in the roadway some distance away from the initial impact scene as well.

Again, RPD has refused to talk to Rockford Scanner, so we can not confirm anything at this time.  If the RPD chooses to release any information, we will update this later on.
