SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Unit is looking into a head-on collision on Ogeechee Road that left a Florida man seriously injured.

Officials say Thursday around 6:30 p.m., a 19-year-old male was traveling north on Ogeechee Road in an Isuzu Rodeo when an unknown vehicle ran a stop sign at Liberty Parkway in front of his vehicle. To avoid hitting that vehicle, the teen swerved left into oncoming traffic and struck a southbound Chevrolet Silverado, driven by a 44-year-old man from Jacksonville.

Both drivers were transported to a hospital for treatment. The man from Jacksonville sustained serious injuries. The teen’s injury status is not currently known.
