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”
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. Upon our arrival were informed that this had been a two vehicle collision. The driver from one of the vehicles was transported to a local hospital. Two people from the other vehicle were pronounced dead on the scene.
Victim: Mr. Paul Conrad ( driver ) of Rockford, Il Age: 66 Victim: Mrs. Sheryl Andreasen ( front seat passenger ) of Rockford, IL Age: 62 Pronounced dead: 6-29-2018 / 5:16 pm
The death is under investigation by the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department. An autopsy is pending by the Winnebago County Coroner’s Office. Toxicology tests will be available in approximately three weeks.
Due to encryption, details are very limited. Northwest Fire Department is requesting mutual aid from Harlem Roscoe Department for a fatality at Riverside and Central Ave. We are not sure at this time if that is due to a car accident or something else. Please check back for more details. Also avoid the area at this time.
Just after 10 AM several emergency personnel were responding to a motorcycle accident with injuries. Initial reports are saying there’s a motorcycle accident in the area of Alpine and Broadway on Rockford’s east side. At least one person is reporting injuries. At this time it is not yet known on the severity of the injuries. Please avoid this area or expect traffic delays.
Around 9:30 AM emergency personnel were on scene of another auto accident in Rockford. This one happened at North Main and West Riverside. A vehicle is reported to have hit a pole near this intersection. Construction is ongoing in the area. Traffic is reported to be at a complete standstill for at least 30 minutes according to several sources. Avoid this area or expect long traffic delays
RS fan Michael: “Our Church trailers were broken into last night and one was actually stolen including all our neighborhood block party outreach equipment. All four trailers on our property were broken into, but unfortunately it was one of the Hey, Neighbor trailers that was taken.
It is most likely that the Hey, Neighbor decal has been stripped off the side of the black trailer, but the remnants or outline of it would probably still be visible. I have attached a picture of it for reference, but if you do see it anywhere, please call us or the non-emergency number for Rockford and make them aware of the whereabouts in the chance that we may actually get it back.

From a source who was involved: -Location: E. Riverside & N. Alpine intersection. -Approx. 5:15pm. -What Happened: We were driving in the far right lane on E. Riverside east bound when were struck head on by a lady making a left hand turn on a red turn light. We didn’t have time to stop, because we were already half way through the green light. She didn’t exchange a name nor insurance information with us.. It happened so fast. Our airbags deployed right when we got struck. Hers deployed after she was out of her car. Fire personnel showed up to the scene first and then RPD and ambulance showed up shortly after. Our car took a lot of damage. My husband was the driver and came out with hip and back injuries. Myself, I came out with an injured knee, bruised tailbone, really bad bruise to my underarm and scraped my neck and stomach. I am also 18 weeks pregnant, luckily no injuries or death of the unborn.. Pretty badly shaken up as this is my husband’s and I first car accident.
