“A burgundy truck just hit me on the interstate and ran me off the road,” said Harvey in the 911 recording from May 8 at 7:28 a.m.
Today, she’s more upset with how a 911 dispatcher handled her call when she called back three minutes later, than she is with the man who scared her on the road that day.
“I am at Getwell and American Way,” said Harvey in the 911 call at 7:33 a.m. “He drove me off the road. He pulled on my door trying to get in my car and beat on my window. I am afraid. Where are the police?”
“You called three minutes ago,” said the dispatcher.
“I understand that, but what if he shoots me? Then what?” asked Harvey.
“If he shoots you ma’am, call back in and give us that information,” said the dispatcher.
“How the hell am I going to call back in if I am shot?” said Harvey.
“Don’t yell at me. I am not the officer and making any…” said the dispatcher.
The 911 recording ended at that point.
Perhaps another line of work for the uncaring 911 operator is called for but the other interesting part of the story...
"Harvey admits she followed the enraged driver to a gas station on American Way and blocked him in so he wouldn’t leave until police got there.
As far as she knows, the man never had a gun and did stay until police arrived."
Common sense would dictate that you not follow the crazy road rage driver who just ran you off of the road (the interstate no less) and then approached your car and beat on your window. Sometimes you have to make a decision....Do you want to be right or do you want to be dead?
