155th and Aurora
Photo by Madelyn Olmstead

Traffic came to a halt at 155th and Aurora around 6pm Tuesday afternoon as emergency vehicles filled the streets.

According to eyewitness Madelyn Olmstead, "Police shut down traffic, stopped a bus and towed it away, and called three ambulances, a fire truck, and perhaps half a dozen cop cars."

Another eyewitness, Renee Ostrem of Richmond Beach, reported seeing an impaired individual in the roadway, which may or may not have been related to the response.

UPDATE 1-31-18  The response in this photo is for a pedestrian who was hit by a car at N 155th. Fortunately, the pedestrian had only minor injuries and was transported by a regular Aid car to the hospital to be checked out.

The person dancing in the street was unrelated to the accident.

An hour later, at Aurora and N 170th, there was a low speed head-on crash between a car and a bus. There were no injuries.

I'd like to hear people refer to them as "police" instead of "cops". It would be a small step to restoring civility in public discourse.
