Was this the event that happened at California Ave and Firestone at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night after our South Gate Council meeting?? I saw at least 10 emergency vehicles; Police, Fire, Emt's etc. with flashing lights. Never saw so many flashing lights at one place except in a Smokey and the Bandit movie.
