A Brooklet couple was killed and three people were injured after a pickup truck crossed the median and rolled over into a car on I-516 at 2:16 p.m. Friday afternoon.

Stephen Carroll Joyner, 29, and his wife, Camie Barnes Joyner, 31, died at the scene of the crash. Their daughter, Dakota Joyner, 3, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment of injuries she received in the crash. She is listed in stable condition.

The driver of the pickup truck, Trever Chase Cannon, 22, of Bloomingdale, is listed in serious but stable condition.

Irven Williams, 47, a motorcyclist who laid his cycle down to avoid the pickup truck, was treated at the hospital at the hospital for injuries that he received from the fall.

Officers from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department's Major Accident Investigation Team said Cannon was driving eastbound at a high rate of speed and lost control of the blue 2002 Ford F-250 pickup truck. The truck then entered the median and overturned, rolling over the motorcycle and crashing into a westbound silver 2004 Toyota Rav 4 carrying the Joyner family.

I-516 was closed for most of Friday afternoon in both directions between Veterans Parkway and Montgomery Street.

MAIT officers are continuing to investigate the wreck.
