Sunday, a warm sunny Sunday. Would have been a great day to be anywhere but work, but as dedicated as we are, we stuck it out(flip-flops and all). The day started with a great breakfast cooked by our guest from #13, Todd Harris. The engine was ready and waiting, soaking up some of the days awesome sunshine. Up until 01:45a.m. it was a "typical" Sunday, a few EMS calls here and there but nothing major. Most of you have seen the "World's Most Amazing Videos", you know...the one with the corny announcer guy....."Death was averted after this horrific crash, you will never believe they walked away!" Here's ours(minus the video footage, use your imagination). E3, M3, E5, and RS1 were sent to Trinkle Ave NE for a motorcycle vs. house(E3 and M3 handled). We arrived to find a heavily damaged motorcycle and a person lying in the front yard of someones house. That never creates that warm and fuzzy feeling when you first approach a scene like that. As we got closer to the bike, we noticed that what was once one bike was now two. Our rider who was laying in the front lawn was easily arroused and was ambulatory within moments, and was actually going to refuse transport until we sold him on the ER. One might think that if the front of your bike is lying a few feet away from the rear half that maybe it would be a good idea to take a ride to the ER......here's a few shots of the wreckage, enjoy!
The ruts in the right hand side of the pic are where our friend traveled across the lawn.
Scattered parts in the lawn......and of course our flashy medic truck
Wonder if duct tape will fix this one.....any MacGyvers out there?After some "all in good fun" smack talking to some of the boys from #9 about our night of un-iterrupted sleep last day....it came back to bite us, sorry Weev! Medic truck ran 3 after midnight including our motocycle wreck.......karma always come back to ya......til next day!
