Two-Vehicle Wreck Sends Two to Hospital in Savannah, Georgia


January 24, 2019

SAVANNAH, GA. – A two-vehicle wreck on January 22 sent two people to the hospital in Savannah, Georgia, according to an online news report from wsav.com. The two people were trapped after their car struck a curb and flipped over on Ogeechee Road.* 

Around 12:30 p.m. on January 22, a vehicle (make and model not reported) was headed west on Ogeechee Road. Close to the Gamble Road intersection, the vehicle “clipped” another vehicle (make and model not reported), according to reports. It is not clear if the second vehicle was in front of the first or whether it was somewhere else in the intersection. 

Upon hitting the second vehicle, the first vehicle drove over a curb and became airborne. The vehicle then flipped and crashed onto a trailer parked near the road. The vehicle landed on its roof with two occupants still inside. Photos from the scene show the car upside down next to a small, crumpled trailer. The Savannah Fire Department had to extricate the two individuals, both of whom sustained injuries. 

An ambulance crew transported both victims to Memorial Hospital. They were both reportedly conscious when they left the scene, but their present conditions have not been disclosed. Neither person has been identified at this time.  

No information was reported about the occupants of the second vehicle. Police did not say whether anyone else was transported to a hospital. 

The cause of the crash has not yet been officially determined, but police suspect speeding on the part of the first vehicle driver was a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
