Huge Police/Fire Response 8pm Monday Night at 13th and Otis

fire 007, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

Lots of emails about this incident. Here’s the most descriptive with the subject line – “10 cruisers, 2 EMS, 2 fire engines on 3600 block of 13th St”:

“No idea what went on around 8pm tonight, but it got a lot of attention from emergency services. Sirens galore. They shut down 13th street between Otis and Spring. At Otis and 13th, cops from about 5 cruisers were interviewing witnesses. At Spring and 13th, the paramedics loaded one individual into an ambulance on a stretcher. Two cars looked to be involved in the collision.”

It’s not clear whether there was a chase involve or if it was just a terrible accident. I’ll see what I can find out from MPD tomorrow. If anyone else knows more about this incident please leave info the comments.
