A mother is grieving after finding out that her college-age daughter was killed in a crash. How she found out about it was unusual. A tracking app showed where the car was and alerted her to the crash. WSB TV has more information.
According to police, the student was on her way back to West Georgia University. She hydroplaned and was hit by another vehicle. She died at the scene. The 18-year old had just stopped at a McDonalds and contacted her mother to tell her about the rain.
The mother was using the app Life360 to track her daughter’s whereabouts. When it showed that the car hadn’t moved from Highway 166 she tried calling her daughter. When she didn’t pick up, the mother drove to the spot of the incident.
By the time she got there, officers told her that her daughter had already died. Now she wants other mothers to consider using these apps to keep their children safe.
These tools could possibly serve another purpose. Evidence from such an app could be use to determine exactly when an accident occurred. This can be very useful in some instances.
