September 27th Overnight Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up


Police and Fire crews responded to the 2000 block of Carmel Drive on reports of a deck fire on the rear of a house just after midnight. The caller advised emergency dispatchers that the fire was "well involved." Fire crews arrived and found very light smoke showing from the back deck. Upon further investigation firefighters located what they described in radio traffic as a "small smoldering spot on the deck." Most fire units were disregarded as they arrived at the scene.

About an hour later, shortly after 1 a.m., Police and Fire crews were called to the 2400 block of W 24th Terrace at the Gazebo Apartments. Police arrived and found a Chevrolet Camaro had left the roadway and crashed through at least one deck supports and ended up against the building. The driver of the vehicle was transported to LMH with a minor laceration to his arm. The occupants of the first floor apartment were not injured and the second floor apartment was reported to be vacant. LJWorld Story for video/pictures and interviews

Just after 2 a.m. Police responded to the 900 block of Massachusetts on reports of a battery. Fire/Medical was also dispatched but, was canceled by LPD who were speaking with the subject. The subject refused all medical treatment at the scene.

LPD also conducted a number of vehicle stops and handled two noise complaints overnight.

What's the story on the accident which I saw at about 9:15 pm on 9/26 in the northbound bridge approach at 6th and Mass? It appeared to be an SUV involved with a bicycle. The bike was under the front right wheel of the SUV. There were at least 6 police cars, 2 firetrucks and an ambulance at the scene.

 I have been wondering that myself. Stayed up late to see if there was going to be an update, but nothing. Tried to find something this morning, but nothing.  I sure hope everyone is okay. It did not look good. It was actually a minivan that the bike was crushed under.
