Here's what people are saying about Crash Detection
Shannon & niece
”A few hours ago, I received a call saying that Life360 had been alerted to a crash involving my niece. She was indeed in an accident, a rollover in fact. She’s alive, bruised and banged up, but alive. I just wanted to say thank you so much for this service. My sister was able to get to her almost as fast as EMS was. We’re just so grateful she’s safe and alive”
