Two St. Cloud police squadcars and a Hiway patrol cruiser race through downtown St. Cloud early after midnight on October 10, 2009. The cars are speeding to Hiway 15 at Veteran’s Drive where there has been a motorcycle crash with injuries. The accident occurred a few hours into the first snowfall of the season which came unusually early this autumn. The tractor trailer in the video shot was not involved in the incident. >>>VIDEO http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VMSI24Uexk8 <<<VIDEO
The GRRL, which I frequented growing up, had a ceremony on October 4 to officially commence it’s demolition. The space will be used for an expansion of the civic center. This photo is not a helicopter shot, rather it was taken from the roof of an adjacent parking ramp.
This shot was taken from the ground as crews began to cut the DeSoto bridge to pieces, span by span. Flight Flash is producing a video that will commemorate the DeSoto bridge from demolition to construction of the new Granite City Crossing bridge. Stay tuned….
Late Thursday evening on September 17, 2009, emergency services responded to the scene at E. St. Germain Street where an individual had been struck by a vehicle. During the event, a 15-year-old relative of the victim allegedly fired at the vehicle with a pistol. Again, Flight Flash has the exclusive photos as no other photojournalists were on scene.
Bursts of light on the horizon and a few audible pops caught my attention just around 9:30 this evening. Thinking it might be lightning, I pulled up the radar to see if there was a storm coming. The radar indicated no storm anywhere near. When I saw the sky flash again, and could hear fire sirens near, I clicked on the radio to learn there was an electrical pole sparking at 1225 W. St. Germain St. Here you see the situation is under control, and the SCFD is awaiting Excel Energy to repair any damage.
