Driver in Fatal Crash on Phone With Police Dispatch Moment of Accident

The driver of the vehicle involved in a fatal crash in downtown Springfield last week was reportedly on the phone with police dispatchers at the moment of the crash.


The State Journal-Register reports that Deanna Simmering had called police to report that she was being chased.


While on the phone, authorities believe Simmering ran a red light and collided with another vehicle.


The impact pushed Simmering’s SUV into a utility pole.


Simmering’s mother, 49-year-old Sara Richardson, was a passenger in the vehicle.


She died a short time later. The circumstances of that crash are still under investigation.
