On Sunday, a young man named Travis Muller died in a car crash in Fort Wayne. The Allen County Coroner has ruled his death an accident, caused by blunt force trauma. Now friends and family of Travis are speaking out, claiming that he could have survived if his friends had simply called 911. 

Joann Muller, the mother of Travis Muller tells WFFT, "Travis was very loving and caring, he would do anything for anybody. He might have not made the right choices but he was kind to everybody.

The accident happened early Sunday morning. Travis' friend Tevin was in the passenger seat of the car when Travis drove off N. Clinton St. near Brooks Rd. 

"He tried to come back with the steering wheel and it didn't come back and it looked like we were going straight for the ditch," said Tevin. 
 
Tevin says the car rolled several times in a ditch, pinning Travis underneath. According to him, two of Travis' friends were following the car.

Joann and Tevin say Travis' friend Gary did not call 911 after the crash. Instead, he pulled Travis out from under the car and drove him to his house.

Gary's sister-in-law Amber tells WFFT that Gary couldn't call 911 because his phone was broken. Amber says Gary drove Travis to the hospital ten minutes after driving home first. 

Mitchell Smith was at the home when Gary returned with Travis' body. He tells WFFT that Gary waited 30 minutes before driving to the hospital.

"Why would anybody wait. Why would you pull somebody underneath. And why wouldn't you take him straight to the hospital. Why would you keep him in a van for 20-30 minutes?" said Joann. 

By the time Travis made it to the hospital, he was already dead. Police also discovered that the car Travis had been driving was stolen.
 
A spokesperson for the Allen County Sheriff's Department tells WFFT the investigation into Travis' death is ongoing and no arrests have been made. Travis' funeral is set for this Sunday, November 24th at 10 a.m.
