Authorities say a 911 dispatcher used a cellphone signal to find a crash victim in central Iowa.
The Madison County Sheriff's Office says a man's car went off a roadway Wednesday afternoon in DeSoto. The vehicle went into a ditch and hit a tree head-on.
The man called 911 and told a dispatcher that he could see trees but he didn't know where he was. So the dispatcher used the man's cellphone signal to try to find the wreck.
Based on the general results, authorities headed toward the area and checked ditches before locating the man.
The man has not been identified. His condition is not available.
