The Department of Homeland Security has been telling us for a long time that "If You See Something, Say Something."
Now police at Iowa State University are giving the same message after nobody called police to report a bizarre crash Tuesday morning in which an out-of-control SUV landed on top of several parked cars on campus.
The wreck drew lots of attention from a number of people who pulled out their phones, but they didn't use them to dial 911.
"Unfortunately, nobody called this in to our department. When officers arrived, there were multiple people standing around the scene taking pictures," the university's police department said in a Facebook post.
According to police, the SUV driver lost control and hit the parked cars near the school's Armory. While nobody was hurt, the incident prompted police to implore the public to call in on anything that looks disruptive or concerning.
" If you see something, say something!," police said. "Careless driving affects more than just you and your car. Everyone is at risk when drivers aren't cautious."
