Meanwhile, though, a fire engine driving along Flinders St (presumably its way to the fire) has run into the side of a van at the intersection of Flinders & Exhibition. As far as I can tell, no-one is hurt, but that intersection is going to be gummed up for a while (mainly affecting trams, the cars can work their way around the truck & van).
Rant time : Hey, drivers - pay attention ! And stop pushing your luck with the traffic light cycles ! And if you do notice an emergency vehicle, stay the heck out of their way ! I have no doubt (well, very little) that the van driver was distracted by something (loud music, phone, whatever), and ended up putting him/herself in a very unfortunate position.
Meanwhile, all of this happening, and here I am with no camera handy ... typical.
