Motorcycle collides with trailer on DeLesseps Ave.


A Guyton man is in serious but stable condition after his motorcycle collided with a trailer that had dislodged from a passing vehicle around 3 p.m. Monday.

Michael Joseph Shikany, 51, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center after the collision on Delesseps Avenue at the Truman Parkway overpass.

Shikany was riding a blue 2005 Kawasaki Z750S eastbound on Delesseps when the trailer dislodged from a gray 1992 Chevrolet Blazer S-10 traveling westbound and rolled into his path. The Blazer was being driven by Walter Ray Thigpen, 54, of Savannah. The collision threw Shikany from the motorcycle and onto the roadway.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department's Major Accident Investigation Team is continuing to investigate the collision.
