Rockford- Friends and neighbors held a vigil in honor of Karen Williams, who remains in critical condition at a local hospital after being critically injured in a police chase that ended near Cherryvale Mall.  Three suspected armed robbers in a white Pontiac, who were fleeing police, smashed into her car, leaving Williams with life-threatening injuries, and her friend's and family in shock.

Her friends lit candles and shared some of their fondest memories of Williams. They say if anybody is strong enough to make a full recovery, it’s Karen.
