Rockford Scanner™: Serious Accident in Loves Park, Avoid The Area





Winnebago County Coroner office has confirmed the victim as 58-year-old Mary Wymore of Machesney Park

Several sources reporting a bad accident in Loves Park. 

Sources reporting a bad accident in the area of Perryville and Mulford. 

Injuries were reported. Sources reporting they might be life threatening injuries.

Possibly fatal. Not yet confirmed.  

Several vehicles are reported to be in the accident.

Up to 5 vehicles are reported to be involved in this accident. 

Please avoid the area or expect traffic delays. 

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.
