UPDATE from the Rockford PD: 
CRASH: Two-vehicle crash at Forest Hills and Pleasant Valley. Serious injuries reported at this time. Please find an alternate route as the road is closed while we investigate. Updates will be posted when there are more details

Sources said they believed this may have been a possible police chase. They said they saw a vehicle traveling over 1oo mph just prior to the accident, and police were chasing a vehicle. Then the accident happened. Officials have not confirmed if their chase was related to this accident scene.
