DAYTON — UPDATE @ 11:28 a.m. (Nov. 30):
The 911 call made after a car crashed into a home killing a mother and son on Lilac Avenue has been released.
“The car went inside the house,” the caller said. “We need an ambulance right now.”
The caller told 911 operators a child came to her house to report the crash and she can be heard trying to calm down the child in the call.
“Baby calm down, just calm down,” the woman told the child while talking to dispatchers.
A 39-year-old mother and her 7-year-old son were killed after a car slammed into their Dayton home late Wednesday night.
The incident started with an officer patrolling the neighborhood spotted a car that immediately fled from him before he was able to conduct a traffic stop, Dayton Police Lt. Steven Bauer said. The driver appeared to have panicked when he saw the officer, sped off, and crashed into the house in the 800 block of Lilac Avenue around 11 p.m., Bauer said.
