Normally the exciting moments are guessing where Lucky will poop or a chat with a neighbor. Sometimes, I'll get to overhear neighbors argue when we walk by their apartment. One night a woman didn't close her blinds before she took off her top and her pancake titties were flopping around in front of the window. I think my eyesight is still damaged from that moment. Tonight, it was a little bit more dramatic.
We were about a quarter of the way around the complex when I heard two really loud bangs from the southwest. I was pretty sure it was a car accident. I've heard that sound before.
I took Lucky back to the apartment and grabbed a camera after hearing sirens coming down Pima Street. I knew it had to be relatively close.
It turns out it was close. About two blocks west at Pima Street and Sahuara, next to Dodge Middle School. I didn't get in the middle of it so the emergency crews weren't bothered by a dork who had nothing to do with the accident (me!)... but I walked over because it was something exciting.
I stood on the opposite side of the street and heard a group passing by say they couldn't believe the car rolled over and everyone walked away with little injury. That was good to hear.
I took a few photos... (click on the pictures for a larger view)

Tucson Fire Dept paramedics and Tucson Police were on the case.
