Woman Killed in Single-Vehicle Wreck in Savannah, Georgia


January 21, 2019

SAVANNAH, GA. – As reported in a news article online at wtoc.com, a woman was killed in a single-vehicle wreck in Savannah, Georgia. The cause of the accident is not yet clear, but the victim has been identified by local officials.*

The crash occurred on Interstate 95 in Savannah. At approximately 10:50 p.m., a Honda Accord was traveling north on Interstate 95. (Reports say the accident occurred at 10:50 a.m., but this appears to be an error, as it is not consistent with information from police.) Near the exit to Jimmy DeLoach Parkway, the driver of the Honda left the roadway for some reason and hit two trees off of the interstate. 

It is not yet clear what caused the driver to travel off the interstate. The Savannah Police Department responded to the scene and did not identify any reason for the accident. No other vehicles were involved. 

Officers found the driver of the Honda deceased in the vehicle when they arrived, and officials pronounced her dead at the scene. She has been identified as 23-year-old Charlotte Jung, of Rincon, Georgia. 

Emergency crews shut down the northbound lanes of I-95 after the accident to allow investigators at the scene to review the crash and clear the wreckage. The road remained closed for several hours and into January 14, when it was finally reopened around 4 a.m. 

The Savannah Police Department is still investigating, and no additional information is available about the crash at this time.
