On the afternoon of January 22, a car hit a pickup truck on Ogeechee Road in Savannah, near the Thunderbird Inn. The car then struck the curb on the edge of the road and briefly went airborne as it flipped over. While on its roof, the car struck a trailer that was parked on the other side of the grassy area off of Ogeechee Road. 

The force of the impact then sent the trailer crashing into an SUV that had been parked behind it. A photo from the site of the accident shows a black car on a tow truck and a white trailer and tan or silver SUV with significant damage in the background. The trailer’s roof and front are entirely crushed, and the front fender of the SUV is hanging off the vehicle. The pickup truck involved is not pictured.

The driver and passenger of the black car were still inside the vehicle when it landed and came to a rest upside down. Firefighters responding to the scene had to use the jaws of life to remove the two from the car. Both of the victims were injured and transported to a local hospital. Their names have not been released, and their medical conditions have not been reported.
