AUDIO: DA releases 911 call in college student's murder

DUNCAN, Okla. — Joyce Smith was driving near the intersection of Country Club and Twilight Beach roads last Friday when she saw Christopher Lane, 22, stagger across the street and collapse into a ditch. The Stephens County district attorney has released Smith's 911 call, placed at 2:57 p.m.

Smith relays Lane's dire condition as passersby stop to help and as a 911 dispatcher sends an ambulance and police.

"If you don't hurry, he's gone," Smith tells the dispatcher.
