This could have been ugly!

A few nights ago, I received a rotation call from the highway patrol. The dispatcher gave a milepost location on I90 and stated that one wheel was missing and one tire was flat. When I asked for a make & model, she replied, "it's a Pontiac Grand something". She said the trooper had already left but there was a county deputy on scene. When I arrived 30 minutes later, I found the vehicle, Unattended, in the ditch, 30 feet off the roadway, with the engine running, sitting in a pool of gasoline from the ruptured fuel tank. What were they thinking!

Sounds as though your L.E. dispatchers and mine may have taken the same training courses. Give as little information to you as possible and the little info they give MIGHT be accurate.. 

I had one a while back that did a skate boarder style grind up a guard rail. Same deal, car is just puking raw fuel everywhere and the officer left it running. When I asked him why he didnt shut it off, his response was " I didnt want to get any gas on my shoes".. What a mess that was to clean up..
