JONES COUNTY - Investigators released the 911 call from an alleged incident of road rage in Jones County this weekend.
Investigators say a Marine was driving drunk when he repeatedly rammed a vehicle carrying a family of three, including a 7-year-old boy.
Cpl. Nicholas Patrick Greene, 22, of Camp Lejeune, is charged with four counts of assault with a deadly weapon and DWI.
According to Jones County Sheriff Danny Heath, Greene was following a Honda Pilot, which was traveling on Highway 17 between Craven County and Pollocksville Saturday night.
Greene --while driving his silver Dodge between 80 to 100 mph-- then rammed into the back of the Honda SUV several times, investigators said.
The driver of the Honda SUV, Jeffrey Krueger, called 911.
Here's a portion of the 911 call:
Operator: Turn around. Is there any way you can turn around?
Driver: I can't. I can't. I'm trapped. I am trapped. I'm gonna hit the car in front of me. I'm gonna hit the car in front of me.
Operator: Sir, I understand. We got them on the way to em, they're coming emergency traffic as fast as they can.
Driver: Help me, help me, help me. He's trying to rear end me.
Driver: Oh my God. I got to put the phone down. I'm sorry I've got to use defensive driving. He's bumping me at 80 miles an hour. I can't. I don't know what to do.
The 911 call is about nine minutes long.
Krueger, his wife and their 7-year-old son were inside the Honda SUV.
"This was the first time in my life when you make a decision and that's the decision that you live or die," Krueger said.
Krueger says the marine's car hit the family's SUV about 20 times. There were no reported injuries.
