What Qualifies as an Emergency in Seattle

On Wednesday night as Wes and I were lying in bed I heard a siren. This isn't unusual. We live off a major arterial and emergency vehicles go by all the time. But the thing was the siren stopped just as it got to us. Then another siren and stop. Another and stop. I got up and looked out the window and could see red, white and blue flashing lights with more cars arriving. Hmmm, that's not good.

I could hear someone screaming, "You're a killer!!! You fucking killed me!!!!" over and over.

This went on for some time. I didn't sleep well, concerned about what had occurred just outside my house.

Well, we found out what it was.

Only in Seattle.
