Today at work I heard a siren followed by a thud. I looked out my window and saw a motorcycle and a helmeted man lying flat on the asphalt at the intersection of State and Jackson. Also in the intersection: an ambulance. How handy.
Apparently the motorcyclist had crashed into the ambulance, which I'm guessing was crossing the intersection against the light.
The motorcyclist was talking, and moving arms and legs, so I'm hoping he was okay. I think it was a slow-speed crash. They put him in the ambulance, then switched him to another after a while, which sounds like he was probably in pretty good shape.
Somehow people routinely crash
into loud machines with lights that flash.
