A multi-vehicle car accident sent six people to the hospital and two people to jail on Saturday, May 7. Police are still investigating the cause of the serious injury car crash.
According to witnesses and police reports, the driver of a silver Toyota car hit a motorcycle at Abercorn Street in southern Savannah. The driver of the Toyota attempted to flee the scene of the motorcycle accident when he ran a stop sign and crashed into another vehicle, a red Pontiac.
The collision between the two cars caused the Pontiac to travel into the lawn of Savannah’s new fire station near the Savannah Mall. Both the Pontiac and the utility pole in the lawn caught on fire.
The two people in the silver Toyota attempted to flee the scene of the accident but were later apprehended on foot. The driver was captured while running through a nearby neighborhood while the other man was caught after breaking into a house.
Five people in the Pontiac were hurt in the collision, including a pregnant woman. While their condition is unknown, all five people in the Pontiac were taken to the hospital. The motorcyclist who was struck was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Injuries stemming from the car accident likely include burn injuries, brain injuries and bone fractures.
The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Major Accident Investigation Team is still evaluating the cause of the multi-car crash. Charges have not yet been filed against the two men but they are expected to be criminally charged sometime this week.
