Text to 9-1-1 Successfully Used to Assist in Traffic Stop
At 11:45 p.m. on Dec. 26, the Vail Public Safety Communications received a 9-1-1 call from a female reporting her boyfriend as suicidal. They were in a vehicle headed westbound on Interstate 70 near Gypsum. The caller was unable to stay on the phone due to the agitation of the suicidal driver and disconnected the call. The suicidal person was threatening to shoot himself if he saw any law enforcement officers.
