Calls to 9-1-1 emergency dispatchers are confirming what NewsChannel 11 told you Monday, that an EMS paramedic tried to prevent a fatal crash just seconds before it happened because he saw someone driving the wrong way on loop and he wasn't the only one.
The following calls came in:
"Caller: They were driving on the Loop and they saw a car going the wrong way."
"Caller: There's an SUV or a truck driving the wrong way on the Loop.
Dispatcher: So he's actually headed northbound in the southbound.
