I agree that it wasn't something I needed to read, except I was looking for vicitims' names in case I knew them....but for the Lieutenant to not know about this before That's newsworthy of a discussion....don't they communicate amongst themselves? They can't possibly be that busy in this little ol town to not hear their radio dispatches.

O.K. Two cars crashed at William and Fifth Avenue. It happens frequently. The injuries did not "appear to be serious." It happens every day. This is a N-E-W-S Story??? For "This" you dangle the bait and lure me to Waste My Time to click-and-read. Kyle, don't mean to beat up on you. You have written many good stories, but this one is a waste of the time of all your readers (except the people involved in the crash). Just trying to coach you dude!
