Groups help I-95 crash victims

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Several groups from multiple counties in southeast Georgia are coming together to help victims of an Interstate 95 rollover crash.

At about 11 a.m. Tuesday, a church bus from Kingham Manor Church in Williamstown, N.J. rolled over four times on northbound I-95 after the driver fell asleep at the wheel, according to a news release from the Savannah Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The bus was part of a three-vehicle caravan of four adults and 17 children. Three adults are at a Brunswick, Ga., hospital with one person in critical condition.

The Glynn Co. Dept. of Children and Family Services, the Boys and Girls Club of Brunswick and the United Way of Brunswick worked with the Red Cross and churches to provide emergency needs to the group.

A church paid for three motels rooms and a Hampton Inn offered two more hotel rooms for free. A Chik-Fil-A provided dinner and the Hampton Inn provided breakfast.

The Boys and Girls Club took the children to its facility and is providing lunch. The children will arrive at about 6:30 p.m. at the Savannah to the Salvation Army facility at 3000 Bee Rd. The Salvation Army will provide a dinner and its recreational facility until the children board a 1:30 a.m. Amtrak train back to New Jersey and New York to be reunited with their families.
