In a nutshell, Walker was not involved in a car accident. Instead, his Bobcat Loader (JCB) fell into the ravine.

Later investigations revealed that there was a spinal problem in the chest. All of this ended the impact of his movement. The phone went missing in the accident.

How to enable car accident detection on pixel phone?
This feature was introduced with the Pixel 4 model. Later it was also given to the Pixel 3 model. This is possible by enabling car accident detection in the pixel phone’s security settings. When enabling this, you must provide access to the microphone and location. You can then enable the emergency contact numbers you need. Each country will receive an emergency helpline, as well as a call for already listed contacts.
What does Google offer with the ability to detect car crashes for its Pixel phones? It mainly uses motion sensors and ambient audio. After realizing that the accident has occurred, the phone sounds the maximum amount of alarm and then asks if the owner of the phone needs help. If the owner does not respond, it quickly calls the emergency number. Police or emergency services will be on hand. Contacts provided by users will also be notified. They can also talk.
He says the emergency team arrived at the drive for about eleven minutes. A Google official responded to a tweet and said he wanted to know how it worked. He thanked the rescuers, the medical team and his family. “After three months, I’m 100 percent healthy,” Walker said.
