The original call came from the driver of the vehicle. He tells dispatchers that he didn’t see the man before he hit him, describing the victim as a white man with a beard, and says that the victim was breathing, but not moving.  

The ER nurse can be heard in the background speaking to the victim, trying to ask his name. 

The driver eventually gives the phone to the nurse, and by the end of the call, the victim seems to be starting to wake up. 


One person was taken to the hospital with reported injuries to the face after a vehicle crash involving a pedestrian on Stanley Avenue underneath state Route 4 just after midnight.
