Four Vehicle Accident

On 10/27/17 at approximately 3:45 pm, Ogle County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a four vehicle accident in the 8,000 block of North Illinois Rte. 2.  It was determined that a vehicle driven by Patricia Lynn Walters, age 70 of Dixon, another vehicle driven by Heather K. Cardott, age 37 of Rockford and a third vehicle driven by Bruce D. McCanse, age 62 of Oregon were all travelling southbound and stopped at the traffic signal for the construction zone at that location.  The fourth vehicle driven by Autumn A. Bondi, age 22 of Rockford was also headed southbound and failed to reduce her speed for the traffic signal and hit the vehicle being driven by McCanse.  This forced McCanse’s vehicle into Cardott’s vehicle and then her vehicle into the vehicle being driven by Walters.  Bondi and her two infant children were transported to Rockford Memorial Hospital by Byron EMS to be checked by hospital staff for any unseen injuries.  McCanse also felt that he needed to be checked by hospital staff so he was transported by Byron EMS to Swedish American hospital.  Walters and Cardott both refused medical treatment at the scene.  The accident remains under investigation at this time.
