MARYLAND CITY, Md. (AP) - A 911 recording of a teenager calling for help after a car crash that fatally injured her father has an emergency dispatcher telling the girl to stop whining.

The contents of the recording, obtained by NBC4 in Washington (http://bit.ly/1KpHghJ), show an operator with the Anne Arundel County Fire Department Communications Division trying to determine the location of Sunday night’s crash in Maryland City on the Baltimore Washington Parkway.

The girl’s father, 38-year-old Rick Warrick, and his fiancee were hit by a car as they changed a tire on the shoulder. The car that hit them then fled.

Warrick died, and his fiancée was injured.

Capt. Russ Davies, a fire department spokesman, said the 911 operator made a poor choice of words, but was trying to get information to get help.
