On my run late this afternoon, I passed the spot where the car had been on fire at 1:30 am this morning. (AMAZINGLY, NO ONE WAS HURT. DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE, KIDS !!!!). There was no obvious sign of it, except to those who knew. I could clearly notice the oil slick, the bent street sign, the place where the car burned. I am honored to be an official volunteer of Indian River County Sheriff's Office, to have experienced a late night ride along last night with Sgt. Milo Thornton, to talk with the night shift deputies - including Mike A Ruiz, Andrew Sebris, and learn about what they do to keep us safe while we are sleeping. To cross paths with firefighter friends Jamie Coleman and Will Smith. What an experience! I will have it up in a couple of days here. Thank you.
