Sirens seem to be part of the background noise in today’s world. That’s a true in larger cities like Ypsilanti and smaller communities like Saline. Oftentimes, I don’t even hear the noise as I go about my day. I live near a fire station, so sirens are just part of my world. Before anyone gets upset, I will clarify that I do listen for emergency vehicles when I’m driving!
This morning, not far from the media lab, a pickup truck struck a local restaurant after a collision with another vehicle. Emergency workers came, including police. While the building will need a new door, it appears no one got hurt. Thankfully, no pedestrians were walking in the area at the time. That kind of amazes me because it was a beautiful morning and there have been people walking past the lab all morning. The car and truck involved also were damaged.
