Article source for : Police Escort Truck Convoy
On Saturday I saw one of the oddest things in my life. I was picking up some veggies from a fruit stand on 795. When I left there was a group of maybe 10-15 tractor and trailers with a police escort.
They had cops in the front and back, and wouldn't allow people in the other lane. I was behind them going to my in-laws and every single road or exit till 280 had cops blocking them off. Then as they passed they would leave.
Looked like they might have even blocked off part of i-280 as we could see cars backed up driving up Lemoyne.
They weren't military vehicles, in fact 1 was a walmart rig and another was best buy.
Anyone ever see anything like that? Didn't catch the news that night but it was weird.
Just seemed like insanely tight security for consumer trucks.
