911 calls reveal new details on crash that killed two at intersection of Eastwood and Military Cutoff roads
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - 911 calls reveal new details on a crash that killed two and injured one at the intersection of Eastwood and Military Cutoff roads on Saturday, Feb. 11 at around 1:43 a.m.
An iPhone belonging to one of the victims called 911 with the message “The owner of this iPhone was in a severe crash and is not responding to their phone.”
That message then gives the latitude and longitude location of the crash and an estimated search radius.
The other 911 call depicts a woman noticing a car damaged in the bank on the side of the road. She says that another car was near the median and that her two friends are checking on the victims.
“She said somebody might be dead. Please send people here,” the caller said.
The two killed in the crash were 23-year-old Joseph Tocci and 28-year-old Kayla Ricks of Wilmington. Police say they believed Tocci was the driver and Ricks was the passenger. 42-year-old Alfred Pattison Jr. of Wilmington, the driver of the other vehicle, is now in stable condition after being taken to Novant Health NHRMC.
The crash is still under investigation.
