Accident Sends Man Back to Hospital

An accident on Interstate 16 this morning sent an Emmanuel County man back to a Savannah hospital. Police say the driver of a Toyota Celica pulled over near Old River Road after the wheel and axle came off of the car. Another driver was pulling over to help when a Cadillac slammed into his SUV.

Two people were injured, one of whom is a pastor from Twin City who was on his way home after being released from another Savannah hospital a short time before the accident.

An investigation is underway and charges are pending.
