There is sobbing and screaming at the beginning of the call before the 911 dispatcher is able to calm Allen down enough to get him to say where he is and what happened.
“Send Aircare. These people need Aircare. I am driving a heavy piece of equipment. I could not stop,” he tells the 911 dispatcher before breaking down again and sobbing. “I couldn’t stop.”
Two others were injured in the crash. One person was transported by medical helicopter to an area hospital.
