Double Fatal Crash

By  | 

But first it has not been a good night on our roadways. Two teenagers died Saturday night after a crash involving a Winnebago County patrol car. This all took place at West State Street and Welden. The squad car was heading east bound on West State Street. It is still unclear what direction the teenagers were traveling. Two teenagers died on scene and a third teen was air lifted to a local hospital. A deputy and a trainee were in the patrol car both were taken to Rockford hospitals. Investigators will be on scene overnight so expect the stretch of West State Street in-between Meridian and the bypass to be closed off till the early morning hours.
