Cops are alerted to killer crash by new iPhone 14 feature that senses accidents and calls 911: Five men and one woman in the car – all in their 20s - are killed after car slams into tree in Nebraska

Six people in their 20s were killed in a car crash in Lincoln, Nebraska on SundayThe victims of the single-car crash include five men who died at the scene and a woman who died later at a nearby hospital Police have described as 'the worst crash in Lincoln in recent memory'Emergency responders were called to the scene automatically by a passenger's iPhone 14 after the car crashed into a tree early on Sunday morning

A feature on the newly released Apple iPhone 14 alerted the emergency services to the owner being in a car crash with multiple fatalities in Lincoln, Nebraska.

All six people in the car died in what police have described as ‘the worst crash in Lincoln in recent memory.’

There were no witnesses to the single-car crash. With everyone in the vehicle either dead or incapacitated, a passenger’s cellphone automatically alerted first responders after the car crashed into a tree early on Sunday morning.

Five men traveling in a Honda Accord all died at the scene of the crash at around 2.15am on Sunday morning. A 24-year-old woman who was in critical condition died later at a nearby hospital.

The five others who lost their lives included the 22-year-old driver together with three passengers aged 21, 23, and two 22-year-olds including a man by the name of Jonathan Koch.

The remainder have not been identified, reports WOWT.

Although the cause of the crash remains under investigation, police explained how they were called after the iPhone detected it had been in a crash and called first responders automatically when the user didn’t react.

The iPhone 14 features a new sensor with a high-G-force accelerometer that detects when the user has been in a car crash, such as ‘side-impact, rear-end collision, and rollovers.’

The feature, dubbed ‘crash detection,’ only activates when traveling in a vehicle.

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

‘I’ve been with this department for 25 years and can’t remember anything as horrible. The cause of this accident is going to take us some time to pin down,’ Morrow added.

‘We are looking at all possibilities, including alcohol, speed or distracted driving.’

So far, investigators have not been able to find witnesses to the crash, which happened near 5600 Block of Randolph Street in Lincoln. The vehicle is believed to have been travelling eastbound when it struck the tree.

The Lincoln Police Department has asked for anyone with additional information or video of the incident to contact the LPD non-emergency number at 402-441-6000 or Crime Stoppers at 402 475-3600.

The crash occurred early on Sunday morning in Lincoln Nebraska
