SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the theft of a pickup truck and two subsequent accidents that left two women injured and the truck heavily damaged around 10:35 a.m. Tuesday.

Central Precinct detectives and the SCMPD Major Accident Investigation Team are working together to investigate.

A 17-year-old driver told police that he left the keys in a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado at the Pennysaver convenience store on Waters Avenue and a woman climbed in a drove away.

Two women were standing and talking on Ott Street when the truck turned the corner and struck them. The truck then crashed into a utility pole that was a block away. The driver fled from the wreckage. Witnesses chased the driver back to Waters Avenue, where they lost sight of her.

The two women, Vickie White, 46, of the 900 block of East 39th Street, and Georgia Thomas, 68, of the 1000 block of East 38th Street, were transported to Memorial University Medical Center.

Thomas' injuries are described as serious and White's injuries are described as minor.

The suspect is described as a black female, 5'6" to 5'8", 175 to 200 lbs, wearing a black shirt and blue pants with a long braided hair worn in a pony tail.
