      Raw thinking.

      Okay, you are walking up a hill. On your right there is a highway, and your left a thick area of pine trees and maples. You can't see through it, but on the other side there is a road that follows the back end of it and connects with the highway in front of you about a mile ahead, up on top of the hill.

      Now, as you walk up the hill, you see a police car fly past, his lights and sirens blaring. You see him go up the hill, and hang a left, turning down an access road, out of sight behind the forest. The sirens fade. Just before you reach the top of the hill, you hear two sets of sirens. One across the forest, possibly coming up the access road, and another ahead, out of sight beyond the hill. The first siren seems to fade with the other, and then another becomes clearer and louded. When you reach the intersection of the highway and access road, there is a police car sitting, facing towards you, a short way down the access road, with a van sitting in front of it. The car's sirens are off, but his lights are still on.

      Which is a more logical conclusion:

      [A]- This police car at the top of the hill is the same one you saw going up the hill

      [B]- This police car at the top of the hill came from across the forest

      [C]- This police car at the top of the hill is the police car that's siren was moving toward you

      [D]- This police car at the top of the hill is a different car came from past the forest, on ahead of you, from some place that way

      Should of looked at the license plate. This does seem tricky, what do you mean by the access road?

      Edit: Also, are the police sirens different, or the same but in different areas?

      They're all the same-- Just coming from different areas.

      This requires not logic so much as proper translation of your lacking description of the situation. If I was in this situation, I would not have to contend with your lack of descriptive skills.
