"...body recovery..."??

Ugh.

Meanwhile, the cheerful people on 1030 have been telling us about bringing in the crane to lift the truck off of the trench and everything is calm and smooth there with fire department there and EMS will see if they need any attention, etc...

That explains the choppers creating all the noise downtown. They will not be able to get any major video from that height except for the one shot with a lot of emergency vehicles and the truck so please take the 2 minute video and then fly away. Thoughts for the families affected by this accident.
