RS source is reporting a hit and run to his little brother earlier tonight.
” Around 5ish on Guilford and Westchester, my little brother was involved in a hit and run. He was crossing the street by a downed limb from the storm. And a car hit him. ”
The vehicle fled the scene. RPD has not given any info on the suspect vehicle. If you have any info, please call the police or you can contact us anonymously and we can relay the tip to the police for you
Update: We have been told it was a fatal. So we went to work the scene.
We asked the officer on scene if it was a fatal. And he just said “it is a current investigation and couldn’t speak” so he did not confirm nor deny if it was a fatal.
With that being said, I have personally worked numerous fatal scenes over the years, and this did not appear to be a fatal accident scene. (Only a few officers, vehicles driving through where the accident scene happened at, etc…)
We were told this was a hit and run. RPD officer wouldn’t confirm nor deny that either. Saying “it is a current investigation and couldn’t speak” so he did not confirm nor deny if it was a hit & run. When I worked the scene, I only saw police officers. I did not see any other vehicles. So this is possibly true. But again, RPD wouldn’t confirm nor deny anything.

Hi I was wondering if you could make a public post for me on behalf of my sister. she doesn’t have Facebook. Around 133 pm today the 14th she was driving on 251 going into Loves Park coming from Rockford right by Sinissippi and a tire flew across six lanes and hit her car and caused a lot of damage. She doesn’t know where it came from but was wondering if there were any witnesses that may have seen it. Any help is appreciated.
