I came through there just a few minutes ago.. 7 police cars and 2 ambulances along with someone from the fire department.

There was a white vehicle parked against the cliff side in the north bound lane. They were looking in the river for some reason. My guess is as good as yours, but part of me thinks that it may of been a traffic stop that went bad. I doubt it was an accident because there was only one non-emergency vehicle there.

So 2 ambulances and fire dept aren't emergency vehicles? Did the car being smashed up on every side not hint there was an accident involved and not a "traffic stop gone bad"?

You're an idiot who obviously doesn't pay any attention.

The non-emergency vehicle was the car involved in the accident. I barely caught a glimpse of the wrecked car. I didn't have time to park my car in the southbound lane, hop the barrier and inspect the car.

And apparently this WAS the result of 'a traffic stop gone bad'! Obviously the cop tried to stop the car initially and he ran!

You are probably so irritable because you work for a volunteer fire department and wasn't invited to the party.
Pathetic

What exactly are you trying to say? His S-10 wouldn't start so he couldn't could turn on the flashing lights and run down there like so many others who just get in the way.

Paid fire department actually. And I had a front row seat to the aftermath thank you. So yea I was invited to the party. Your two cents is what we call rubber neckin nosey ass people who think they know everything just because they drove past the party

So we're paying you to give us attitude? Just because the police department has an incident doesn't mean that we don't have a RIGHT to find out what they've done to a fellow citizen..I don't know the details just yet, but either way when the local major highway is shut down and there are six+ state police vehicles there, the general damn public becomes curious has a right to know... There's nothing wrong keeping track of the local law enforcement. In my opinion it's part of the check and balance system that keeps everyone responsible.

And FYI, why the hell did it take an additional 10-15 minutes for a single PCFD truck could get there, compared to the state police? I happened to drive down the road from shopping in Coal Run apparently right after it happened. Despite the need for an engine or fire response vehicle isn't it standard procedure for you guys to show up ASAP? No wonder there's so many people that die on the local stretch of 23.

EMS is not aloud to show up until given clearance by post that there is no longer danger at the scene. Which means the people would have fo be apprehended, etc. So usually they are sitting within a short distance out of sight waiting for clearance. Don't question why it takes so long. There's protocols to be followed. And it's none of your business to question our job.

Best post on here!!!1

Usually the police dept stick their nose in everything coming and going instead of being where they should be. And the ambulance service wil let someone lie there and suffer instead of getting in a hurry. Took them 49 minutes to get to my mother as she lives 1/4 mile from them.( as sje lay there and suffered with a bromen back from a fall) and when they do arrive they like to play doctor.

Just get the Hell to the scene and quit washing on the Damm cars . as it happened today as well. Went by there and they weer all washing their cars on county time in uniform.

Great use of tax dollars. Washing county/city vehicles on the tax payers time.

hell get me a job there,so I can get paid to wash my car. Hell I'll wash everyone's car if I'm on the clock and then sit there and feed my big fat @ss as they were doing on the other side of the lot

Dude, you work for US! We pay a of tax dollars for emergency responders to be on hand at all times. It's impossible to please everyone but you should welcome all criticism you can have - because it may help you improve your ability to do your job.
Also, something tells me you are not on the front line, maybe you are a dispatcher. I'm hoping the people we hire to put out our fires and stabilize our injured are far more professional than you seem to be.
All I'm saying is that the criticism about taking so long for EMS to respond is not because of them. It's because they are not aloud to respond until given clearance. And people need to realize that. EMS works very hard, but at the same time they are not armed and can not defend themselves the way law enforcement can. They aren't purposely taking a long time, they just can't respond until told to.

The main issue in your whole dialogue has been your attitude.. I'm glad to see that you have dropped the bravado that you had in the past. I understand the potential safety problems you had.. but you need to remember you work for the public and we pay you..and you in return save us from certain death.. we appreciate your professional attitude in conversation and respiration alike..Like Heard's Boss said, we are all in this together and work in a team act professional in all parts of your life, remember that especially when people are critiquing you. You chose to be in that position.:)

Thank you for treating the crooks that ran from the cops.. and thank you for treating me and my fellow citizens. If I could meet you in person to do so I would.:)
