SO I'm getting ready to go to sleep, and I hear a car racing fast down the street. Then I hear a loud SCREECH and a crash. WTF?

I go to the door and hear sirens, just in time to see three police cars converge at a point two houses over, where a car has spun out into the woods across the street. For the next half hour, I hear sirens coming from everywhere as something like a dozen police cars race around up and down the streets like mad. Some of them are from the next town over.

Most of the cops are gone now; there are a couple staying with the crashed car, whose headlights are still on and glaring down the street. What on earth have I just witnessed? Bet it makes tomorrow's paper.

Hopefully it is in the paper, so at least you know what was going on! sounds like noone was hurt badly tho, and its a good thing the car into the forest, and not a house!

Hopefully you won't be in the paper also! Yikes!

I'll be thinking of you and hope to see a post explaining it all when I get up in the morning!

Stay Safe!

The cops love to make a drama out of probably a DUI case.

Who knows?

Well, it must've happened too late to make this morning's paper; the situation seemed to wrap up around 130 in the AM. Perhaps the news will have something.

Haha,

Just the way you described that makes it sound funny. I hope whoever was in the car is okay.

I've never witnessed (or even heard) anything like that. I wonder what it was. Did you walk outside to see what had happened?

Melliferal,

Scenes like that are surreal, especially at night, don't you think. It would be interesting to see what attracted so much police attention.

Much love,
Larry

mell, it's good you're ok. and at least had a safe ringside seat.

this reminds me of when i was in high school. my mother and i lived in a modest home in west LA. it's was around 130am - i was doing homework, sitting at the dining room table.

a helicopter was buzzing so low over head and the search light was partially coming into our house and all over our block. very weird - and bizarre.

i looked out the window - and cop cars coralled both sides of the block and a rifle swat guy - was nearby against a pine tree.

our neighbor "called Marie 'across the street'' a real nosy gossip but great 'watchdog' - opens her front door and starts loudly asking in her whine

(i can hear this through a closed window)

EXCUSE ME to the cop with the rifle - CAN you tell me what's going on here???

M'am go back inside - the cop waived..

' i chuckled and eyes rolled... oh Marie..."

I kid you not.

I didn't walk outside, but I opened the door and listened. The cops were yelling things and at one point I thought I heard (but could easily be mistaken) something that sounded like "armed", so I closed the door and watched through a window.

But the situation died pretty quickly; nothing but some tiremarks in the grass across the street now.
