911 calls from Taconic Tragedy released

Posted: Updated:

Nearly one year after the Tragedy on the Taconic, News 12 has obtained a series of recordings of 911 phone call made by witnesses and passersby during the horrific crash that killed eight people last summer.

Toxicology reports revealed that Diane Schuler was drunk and high when she drove in the wrong direction on the Taconic Parkway. Schuler eventually crashed head-on into another vehicle, killing herself and the four young children in her vehicle, along with the three men who she crashed into.

The Schuler family maintains that Diane was not drunk or high at the time of the crash, and are allowing documentary filmmakers to pay for and film her body being exhumed.
