NOTE: Winnebago County Sheriff Office (Or any local police departments) RARELY releases any press releases, so do not expect an update on this story. Sorry, but this is what happens when they encrypted.

Update from a party that was involved:  The other driver was traveling the wrong way on Whitman Street bridge and hit me head on. I’ve been in the hospital since so I haven’t been able to see my car but I’m sure it’s totaled. Doctors say I have an orbital fracture in my face. Other than that it’s just whiplash to my neck and some bruising to my pelvis and lower back.
