Saylor and His Family are Killed in a Car Crash
call documents the fatal cash crash that claimed the lives of California Highway Patrol officer Mark Saylor and his family.The group was traveling in a rented 2009 Lexus ES 350 on state Route 125 when the accelerator on the vehicle became stuck.The vehicle was steadily increasing in speed with no response from the brakes.A 911 call was made by one of the members of the car.The caller stated that their car would not slow
down and that they were traveling at 120mph towards an intersection. The terrifying call contains the groups last
moments before the car crashes killing all four people inside.The family’s car entered the
intersection and collided with a Ford Explorer.It then went over
a curb and through a fence before going over an embankment and becoming airborne.The car rolled several
times before finally bursting into flames in the San Diego River basin.
In 2007, Toyota Motor Corp, the makers of Lexus cars,
recalled more than 30,000 all weather floor mats used in the 2008 Lexus ES 350 after complaints that the mats would slip forward and jam the accelerator.I could not find out if this car was equipped with all weather
floor mats, but you would think that the company would have solved this problem by the 2009 model.The
cause of the crash could not be determined by the wreckage.Without the 911 call the accident would
be a complete mystery.
Nielson Columbine High School Call
High School massacre occurred on Tuesday, April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School in Colorado, United States.Two students, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold shot and killed 12 students and one teacher.The
event injured 21 other students.Many 911 calls were made from inside the school while the massacre
was being carried out.The most infamous call was made by teacher Patti Nielson.
on duty as a lunchroom monitor in the cafeteria when the shooting began.She described seeing Eric
Harris' smiling face looking at her and then he shot her.The bullet grazed her shoulder (in the
call you can hear her refer to her shoulder injury).She then ran into the library to call 911.Patti ordered all of the students to get under the tables. The time period between the call being
answered and the shooters entering the library was four minutes and ten seconds (from the length of the video you can
get an idea of when this occurred).Before entering, the shooters threw two bombs into the cafeteria from the staircase in the South Hallway, both of which exploded (this caused the smoke that Patti refers to in the
call).The gunman entered the library where 52 students and 4 teachers were hiding (including
Patti).This is where the majority of the massacre occurred and the pair walked from table to table
shooting students.Authorities did not enter the school until 1 hour and 46 minutes after the call
was placed.This recording stops shortly after the killers enter the library.Patti
Nielson was one of the last survivors to leave the school.
