Around 6:30 pm
“Fatal Pedestrian vs Train (Cary) Cary FPD were on scene at 5:30 PM of a fatal train vs pedestrian accident near Dunkin Donuts, 630 Northwest Hwy. There was also a rollover vehicle crash near this (separate incident).”
Several Rockford Scanner fans have sent us information on a fatal accident that happened overnight near Rochelle.
A man in his 40’s was struck by a train and killed near Washington st. The train (possibly a Union Pacific) was headed westbound. The man was found dead on the tracks.
The cause of the death is under investigation. An autopsy is scheduled. The name has not yet been released.
Just before 2 am this morning emergency personnel were dispatched to Perryville and Linden, just north of the intersection. It was originally dispatched as a vehicle that crashed into a pole. Once emergency personnel arrived on scene, they believe it may have been hit by a train. Unknown on injuries. No other information.
