Two Injured in Savannah, Georgia, Vehicle Crash


January 06, 2019

SAVANNAH, GA. – Two people were injured in a vehicle crash that took place in Savannah, Georgia, according to an online news report from wsav.com. One person suffered minor injuries in the crash, and one suffered life-threatening injuries.* 

27-year-old Paulina Corral, of Richmond Hill, Georgia, was driving a Volkswagen Jetta northbound on Abercorn Street in Savannah. At the intersection with Lewis Drive, a southbound Jeep Wrangler made a U-turn onto northbound Abercorn Street, and Corral’s Jetta struck the Wrangler. 

After impact, the Jetta continued north, traveled off the east side of the roadway, and hit a tree. The vehicle then rotated and hit another tree. A limb from one of the trees subsequently crashed down and landed on a parked Honda Civic. The Honda was damaged, but no one was in it at the time, so no injuries occurred from the fallen limb. 

Corral suffered minor injuries and was transported to Memorial Medical Center for treatment. A passenger in her car, 39-year-old Samuel Padilla, of Savannah, Georgia, suffered life-threatening injuries and was also transported to Memorial Medical Center. His current medical condition is not known. 

The driver of the Wrangler, 38-year-old Latasha Brown, of Port Wentworth, Georgia, was reportedly not injured. Authorities do not yet know all of the circumstances of the accident. It is not clear why Brown made a U-turn and why she did so in the path of the oncoming Jetta. Investigation into the accident is ongoing, and no additional information has yet been released.
