Police in Australia are alerted minutes after an accident by the iPhone 14 Crash Detection

The iPhone 14’s Crash Detection feature immediately notified police of an accident that occurred in the early hours of the morning in the Australian state of Tasmania, enabling the victims to receive aid right away.

According to ABC News, a four-wheel drive truck towing a horse float collided with a tree stump in Tasmania at 1.45 a.m. on Monday.

Despite the passengers’ slumber, the Crash Detection feature alerted nearby police, who arrived on the scene within eight minutes.

One person with significant injuries was transferred by air ambulance to Melbourne, while five people between the ages of 14 and 20 were taken to the hospital, the report said.

Inspector Ruth Orr claimed the police came quickly because they were already on the scene for “an unrelated matter” as a result of the automatic crash alert given by one of the two occupants’ mobile phones.

“But in a case where people had lost consciousness in a crash like this, it is certainly something that alerts police quickly,” Orr was quoted as saying.

The iPhone 14’s Crash Detection feature and Emergency SOS via satellite features helped rescue two persons who were trapped in a major car accident in the US in December of last year.

The incident reportedly happened on the Angeles Forest Highway in the Angeles National Forest in the US state of California, sending a car careening over the edge of a mountain and plummeting about 300 feet into a remote canyon.
