Single-Vehicle Wreck Injures Seven

Seven members of a Savannah family were injured when they were involved in an overnight accident on the Veteran's Parkway. A woman driving south on the parkway just after midnight tells police her van's back tire blew out. She lost control of the vehicle, it spun around and flipped over, landing on its side.

Besides the driver, there were six other people in the van, including four small children. And the driver tells us, no one was wearing seatbelts.

A motorist traveling behind the van stopped and called police while helping the children out of the overturned van. Most of the passengers were suffering cuts and bruises, although one young man was more seriously injured with a possible broken arm.

Five people were taken to Memorial Health for treatment. No names have been released.
