Crash Charges

A Rockford resident is charged with reckless homicide after a three-car accident Sunday afternoon.

It happened at the intersection of US 20 and Pecatonica. State police say 31-year-old Cherin Dobbs plowed into the back of a Chrysler van stopped in the intersection, pushing it into a truck.

Dobb's passenger, 39-year-old Maurice Goodman, died. Six other people had minor injuries.

The Winnebago County coroner will be performing an autopsy on Goodman's body.
