WYOMING, Minn. (KMSP) - Police in Wyoming, Minnesota are reminding drivers to move over when they see emergency lights.
Saturday night, officers were responding to call for backup at a traffic stop, but were "delayed due to people refusing to move over," an officer wrote on Facebook.
During that traffic stop, a driver exited the vehicle with a shotgun in hand and was reportedly refusing to drop it.
"I’ll say it again. Our officers responses to a life threatening situation were delayed due to people refusing to pull over and come to a complete stop for an emergency vehicle with lights and sirens activated. Thankfully the driver surrendered peacefully," they wrote.
So, officers are reminding drivers that when you see an emergency vehicle approaching, you must pull over and come to a stop. The only exception is if you’re on a divided roadway and the emergency vehicle is on the other side.
