Two Flashes

As I type this, emergency crews are cleaning up an accident about two hundred meters from my house. Someone hit a utility pole, causing a couple bright flashes when the wires touched, and then the car flipped over, crushing the roof pretty bad. I called 911, and about three minutes later, the first siren arrived.

Yay for the Jaws of Life(tm). And yay for the cell phone with ‘net access.

Update 8:44pm EST: Power was turned off for about three hours while the utility crews attached a crutch to the pole.
