Fatal Crash 9-1-1 Calls Released

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.
Caller: There was an ambulance going, um, on the other side of the highway.
Dispatcher: We have a big, huge wreck right at 34th and the Loop.
Caller: It looks like he was gonna try and follow it, but it was going the wrong way on the wrong side of the road."

Friday's night crash killed Texas Tech student, 21-year-old Amber Menefee. The driver accused of going the wrong way is 20-year-old Erin Nicole Reagan.

Reagan is charged with intoxicated manslaughter. The case is now in the hands of the Lubbock County District Attorney's office.
