Harrowing 911 calls caught the horror of a high-speed Las Vegas crash that killed nine people, including four kids, with one witness reporting there were “bodies everywhere.”
“Oh my God — is that a baby? Oh my God!” one woman repeatedly cried in a series of 911 calls released by police over Saturday’s crash allegedly caused by a driver speeding through a red light at more than 100 mph.
“Oh my God. My God! Get down, it’s a kid, it’s a kid, don’t look!” another caller said in Spanish, according to clips obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Many of those stumbling across the horrifying six-vehicle crash reported seeing multiple people thrown from vehicles, with one caller saying, “There’s bodies everywhere.”
“There’s a lot of people on the floor,” another caller said, according to the local outlet. “It’s a lot of people dead. Inside the car, outside the car.”
Police say the crash was caused by Gary Dean Robinson, 59, speeding through a red light. Robinson — who had a history of speeding offenses — was killed alongside his 46-year-old passenger, Tanaga Ravel Miller.
He slammed into a minivan, killing seven members of a local Vegas family inside: driver Jose Zacarias-Caldera, 35, and passengers David Mejia-Barrera, 25, Gabriel Mejia-Barrera, 23, Bryan Axel Zacarias, 15, Lluvia Daylenn Zacarias, 13, Adrian Zacarias, 10, and Fernando Yeshua Mejia, 5. Four others were injured in the crash.
The dead children’s mother, Erlinda Zacarias, told the Review-Journal that it felt like her “world has ended.”
Her kids had been with her younger brother and two stepsons and were driving to meet her and her husband when they were hit while waiting at the light.
On Wednesday, Zacarias closed down an online fundraiser after being overwhelmed with donations, raising more than $300,000 for funeral costs.
