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.
