THIS is the 911 harrowing call made to cops after a British family were wiped out in a horror crash while on holiday in Florida.
In the recording a woman can be heard telling the emergency services the four tragic tourists were in “a lot of peril”.
Adam Stephenson, Maryanne Stephenson, 29, Brian Stephenson, 66, and Sheralyn Stephenson, 56, were all were pronounced dead at the scene on Monday.
The family – visiting the States from Bristol – had just enjoyed watching a launch at the Kennedy Space centre when collided with a pickup truck.
Their sat-nav allegedly told them to do a u-turn on a motorway.
In the recording the eyewitness states that she saw a “big truck hit a little white car very hard”.
She goes on to say “everything went flying. I am assuming they are in a lot pf peril”.
When asked if anyone looks injured the caller responds: “Yes. Definitely hurry.”
The driver of the truck, James D. Walsh II, 28, was taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
A police spokesman said: “The preliminary investigation reveals that the driver of a white Mitsubishi sedan, Adam P Stephenson, 30, of Bristol England, was traveling west on SR 405, made a left turn at the intersection of Sisson Road, into the path of an eastbound black Ford F-250 pickup truck. The heavy-duty truck violently impacted the passenger side of the small sedan.
“Investigators believe the Stephenson family had just left the Kennedy Space Center in their rental vehicle and were attempting to navigate back to their rental house in Davenport at the time of the crash.
“GPS in the vehicle was instructing a “U-turn” at the intersection, most likely because of an earlier crash with road blockage on SR 407 -which was the original GPS route from the Space Center for their trip back to Davenport.
“This crash remains under investigation by the Titusville Police Department.”
