Another FRU (Fast Response Unit) has crashed, luckily no-one was injured, at least in part due to the FRU driver not being a 'boy racer'. The FRU was on it's way to (yet another) category 'A' call, when it crossed a 'T' junction against the lights. The flashing lights and sirens obviously meant nothing to the driver who pulled out in front of the FRU. A reasonable amount of damage was done to both vehicles, but there were no serious injuries.
Interestingly, when the police started up the other car, “Drum 'n' Bass” pounded out of the stereo entertaining the whole street. Maybe this is why the driver didn't hear the sirens of the FRU?
The main problem with the FRU is that because it is small, sleek and very fast, people tend not to see it coming. Also unlike an ambulance (where you sit fairly high up), you don't have brilliant vision of the road ahead.
Ambulaances tend to have little 'bangs' when reversing, FRU cars tend to make a bit of a mess. It helps that it takes a real effort to get over 40mph in an ambulance.
One day they'll let me loose on an FRU car – Then I'll see if I can cure more people than I run over…
