Several pedestrians were struck by vehicles overnight in the area.

#1  FATAL ACCIDENT THAT KILLED A TEEN: A pedestrian was hit  and killed in Loves Park. Details at http://rockfordscanner.com/2019/09/15/rockford-scanner-pedestrian-was-struck-by-a-vehicle-in-loves-park-possible-fatal/

#2 FEMALE HIT BY A VAN: On Springfield ave, in the westbound lanes between Prairie and the Lowes Distribution Center.   Sources said a vehicle hit a female in the westbound lanes.  We were originally told the vehicle involved was a 1st responder vehicle. I worked the scene, and I did not see any indication that it was. So that is not confirmed. I did see a dark colored van with a stripe along the side of it, and a few antennas on it, that had front driver side damage to it.  Behind that vehicle was several evidence markers in the roadway and police talking to a male.  Police had the westbound lanes of traffic blocked off, while investigating.  It is not yet known on the severity of the females injuries. I have been told they were serious, but police have yet to confirm this. The cause of the accident is under investigation.

#3 Parmele and 15th, a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle. Unknown on the severity of the injuries. Not a lot of information is available about this scene, other than a pedestrian was hit by a vehicle and the vehicle fled the scene.

The cause of the accidents are under investigation.   Police have not yet released any information on any of these scenes. Winnebago County Coroners office has released information on #1, the teen that was killed in Loves Park. We will provides updates as they become available.
