Forgot To Mention A Bit Of Excitement In Perth

There was something that I missed out in last nights posting - there was some excitement, or was it drama, in Perth. As I was walking down Albany Hwy a cop on a motorbike with siren wailing and lights flashing sped through the traffic and turned up Wharf St. He was followed soon afterwards by the radar buddies in a vehicle.

I turned down Wharf St myself and could see two sets of flashing lights up by the level crossing where the street and the train tracks meet. On my way back from the post office I noticed the lights still flashing. Now, if I'd had my camera, and if it wasn't raining so heavily, I would have made the trek to the crossing as I am a bit of a morbid bastard. Obviously someone got hit by a train or something.

Some 10 mins later I spotted an ambulance with lights and siren blaring racing towards the city. Well, it appears that whoever was involved in whatever circumstances survived the initial contact. Come to think of it, I wouldn't have reached the scene before the ambulance left so it would have been a waste of my time as there would have been nothing to see. Any blood would have been washed away anyway.

It was a bit exciting though. I'll have to listen to the local news to find out what happened.

But that's about 3km away. What time was that? The incident I'm referring to happened just before 8pm.
