Default Charlottesville / Albemarle Incidents

Well, this morning ACFR, CARS, SPVFD, ERVFD, ACPD, Pegasus Helicopter, and a heavy-wrecker rescued a person trapped when a trash-truck rolled-over on a rural county road.


Now CFD is responding to the downtown brick mall for commercial structure fire with flames showing in the lower level of the building.
Edit: Upgraded to a 2-alarm.


Busy day so far, and it's not even noon.

Prayers of safety for all involved.

Local news sites reporting that a "massive" manhunt is underway on the south side, for a man who was being transported to the local jail, but who kicked out the rear window of the cruiser and escaped while the vehicle was moving. The man is a carjacking suspect, a multiple-felon, and considered dangerous, with a history of B+E x6, abduction and kidnapping x2, grand larceny x2, and robbery, etc.. See local news sites for details.

Most radio traffic is heard on the "Event" TGs on the Charlottesville/Albemarle TRS, though several others TGs/frequencies are being used. (As usual for an event in progress, I will not specify channel-details for typical safety reasons, and recommend others don't also.)

Update...
...car drove over several people. Critical, moderate, and minor injuries reported. Suspect in custody.

Interesting tie-in on this...

Yesterday afternoon I was listening to [STARS] TACTEAM3 (TGID 43) and was hearing a lot of comm traffic, some of it in the clear, most secure.

Troopers were discussing going to Charlottesville for the weekend, some wishing the whole thing would be rained-out.

Another quipped about the dress-code for the weekend being: Shorts, T-Shirts, but they must be clean-shaven.


At the time, I was unaware of today's planned event(s) in Charlottesville.
