A Dallas resident, Kelvin Crowe made multiple attempts to reach 911 after his fiancé was injured by a car rear-ending their vehicle on Interstate 45. He reached busy signals and never got through to the call center after 4 attempts.
Crowe proceeded to get out of the car to flag down a vehicle when he was hit by a passing car and suffered a broken arm and severely bruised leg. Seeking medical attention, Crowe finally reached 911 from another passing car’s cell phone.
Dallas City officials say that it is not possible to reach a busy signal and there was no record that his call ever got to the call center. A city statement expects that it was a problem with Crowe’s cell carrier, however T-mobile denied that there was a problem.
It is unsure as to as to the exact reason why the calls placed to 911 were never successfully made. All victims of auto accidents caused by the negligence of another driver in the Dallas area should contact an experienced Dallas car crash attorney for a free legal consultation.
