While doing stuff around the house, the sudden sound of a low flying helicopter made me stop doing what I was doing. I opened a window and saw nothing. Then sirens and two speeding police vehicles through my street. I grabbed my phone and opened one of the first responders notifications app I had installed. An accident had happened so I decided to grab the camera and go check out wat was going on.
When I arrived at the location, the people involved in the accident were already being driven and or flown away. This photoset shows the aftermath and the first responders involved in investigating what had happened. On the website of a local news agency it was explained that a motorcycle rider had hit a pedestrian. I didn’t see it happen so I don’t know how severe the accident was. I just hope everyone involved is well or gets well.
