20-year-old jailed after fatally hitting woman with vehicle

Savannah police allege that a young man fatally stuck a woman with his vehicle on a recent Wednesday, and then tried to run away from the accident site. The 20-year-old man has been arrested and charged with first degree vehicular homicide, reckless driving, running a stop sign and other violations relating to the incident.

The fatally struck victim of the crash was a 69-year-old woman. She was driving a Nissan Versa, which the 20-year-old driver t-boned with his vehicle, a Ford Fusion, at approximately 5 p.m. on Wednesday. Police say that the man hit the woman's vehicle because he failed to stop at a stop sign.

Police also say that the Savannah-Chatham Police Department's undercover drug team was monitoring the 20-year-old driver just before the wreck occurred. They said that they were conducting what they refer to as "rolling surveillance" on the man. However, as of the following day, police were unsure of what happened prior to the accident. It is unclear whether the man was actually being pursued by officers at the time. The Georgia State Police are also investigating what may have happened in this case.

Police say that just minutes prior to the accident, the man drove into a carwash. There, detectives with the police department's undercover unit approached the man, and he drove away. Then, after the collision, the man tried to run away from his crashed car, but metro-area police captured him and arrested him. Unfortunately, the 69-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the crash site.

It is always a good thing when officers are able to apprehend someone who tries to flee the scene of an injurious or fatal car crash. This is because, if the at-fault driver in a crash flees, then there will be no one to hold accountable for financial damages and/or wrongful death damages associated with the accident. This Georgia car accident case is clearly a tragedy, but at least we can take solace in knowing that all parties are identified and justice will indeed be served.
