iPhone Alerts Police To Car Crash That Kills 6

Police rushed to scene after getting distress call from an iPhone

Six people in a car died in an accident when the black Honda Accord they were in crashed into a tree near the 5600 Block of Randolph Street, Lincoln, Nebraska with police alerted by the iPhone of one of the victims.

Police officers responded to a 911 call from a phone of one of the victims, indicating the owner was not responding to his mobile.

Lincoln Fire and Rescue personnel rushed one of the victims, a 24-year old woman to the hospital but she died while receiving treatment.

The remaining five occupants, who were pronounced deceased at the scene, were men. The driver was a 26-year old. One passenger was 21, one was 23 and two victims were 22 years old.

Worst Accident

According to news report, Lincoln police had asked those with information to contact them.

“This is the worst crash in Lincoln in recent memory,” Lincoln Police Assistant Chief Michon Morrow said. “We’ve been trying to think of another accident this bad and we haven’t come up with anything.”

AP reported that investigators had not been able to find any witnesses to the crash by Sunday afternoon, which could make it harder to determine what happened.

“The cause of this accident is going to take us some time to pin down,” Morrow said. “We are looking at all possibilities, including alcohol, speed or distracted driving.”
