TAKE CARE IN FALL CONDITIONS—An accident on the corner of Monroe and Division on Friday, October 23, was blamed on wet and slippery conditions. “It’s a typical case of sliding and bumping into each other,” said the Rockford officer in charge of the scene. A young driver injured her hand after rear-ending the vehicle in front of her. She was very distraught, but no serious injuries were apparent. An ambulance was not called to the accident, although both vehicles were towed by River Valley Auto. “This is our second one of these today,” the officer said. We’ll be seeing them all season.” In addition to the Rockford Police, Michigan State Police responded to the accident. Both vehicles were heading eastbound on Division when the accident occurred. Speed was not a factor.
