“An ice cream van crashed on my street yesterday. The whole area was coned off”

Sometimes streets are “coned off,” and there’s a joke about that. “Been to an ice cream mans funeral today, couldn’t park anywhere! It was all coned off .....” was posted on Twitter by Richard Bagshaw on May 24, 2009. “BBC News: Ice cream van driver hut in Northampton crash. Police were there like a Rocket, did a Fab job and soon had the area coned off” was posted on Twitter by Steve Varty on May 24, 2010.

“An ice cream van exploded in the street earlier. When I got there the area was already coned off. Hundreds and thousands had to be evacuated” was posted on Twitter by Gene Hunt on June 3, 2011. “An ice cream van exploded in Daventry today. Details are flaky, but Police have coned off the area. Hundreds and thousands had to be rescued” was posted on Twitter by Chris Heaton-Harris on August 12, 2014. “Hundreds and thousands” are sprinkles.

There was an explosion in an ice cream van outside my office at lunchtime. When I got there the area was already coned off.
