Freeport, Illinois — Some time at around approximately 5:30 p.m. this afternoon two vehicles were involved in a serious accident occurring on the corner of Walnut and South streets in Freeport, Illinois. Police, fire and local crews are currently on the scene at the time of this report. We have no information on possible injuries.
Early reports from witnesses state a white car going fast, (“the White car was going a bat out of h***”) a flash and the person looked and saw the car upside down in the road. They said then someone pointed out the car inside the insurance building. The white vehicle was reportedly heading south on Walnut.
UPDATE: One person has stated that no one was in the office. Another person has said, while we haven’t confirmed, that no one was hurt.
