Calls For Help

For the first time in 41 years, the Asheville Police Department is mourning the death of an officer killed in the line of duty. Senior officer Robert Bingaman died Tuesday when his cruiser crashed off the Jeff Bowen Memorial Bridge. He was 37-years-old.

911 calls are giving us a better idea about what happened moments before officer Bingaman's cruiser went off the Jeff Bowen Memorial Bridge. In some of the calls for help you can hear how difficult it was for witnesses to explain what they just saw.

Dispatchers were quickly trying to get callers to tell them the exact location of the accident. Their next question then was what could have caused Officer Bingaman to crash.

A Facebook page was set up in honor of Officer Bingaman.
