Wrong Way Semi?

At approximately 8:36 am scanner traffic indicated an accident at Arby’s.

Was the semi going in the wrong way.

It was in the exit way, kind of looked like it struck something on the side.

Was this 10-46 actually, or 10-45?

Beeline Service was on scene for the tow.

Break The Stigma

For Mental Health Month this year, Mental Health America is encouraging individuals to look around and look within. From your neighborhood to genetics, many factors come into play when it comes to mental health conditions. We encourage everyone to consider how the world around them effects their mental health.
