Counting Sheep at Bedtime

So, I’m lying in bed last night reading before going to sleep.  I still have the police scanner on.

I hear:

“Station 40, respond to the Turnpike mile marker xx.x northbound on an overturned vehicle with possible entrapment.  Use caution for sheep running around on the highway.”

And suddenly my head pops up.  They repeat the dispatch identically.

The story:

You can’t make this stuff up.

Tell me what you're thinking...
