iPhone alerts first responders to crash that killed six young people

Six young people were killed when their car slammed into a tree in Nebraska — a horrific crash that was detected by the new iPhone 14, which alerted first responders, authorities said.

Five men in the Honda Accord died at the scene of the crash around 2:15 a.m. Sunday in Lincoln, police said. A 24-year-old woman who suffered critical injuries died later at a hospital.

“This is the worst crash in Lincoln in recent memory,” Assistant Police Chief Michon Morrow said. “We’ve been trying to think of another accident this bad and we haven’t come up with anything.”

One of the occupants had the recently released iPhone 14, which can detect a serious car crash, call 911 and alert the owner’s emergency contacts.
