Car crashes into light post overnight on Ogeechee Rd.

Posted: Updated:

Crews responded to a single vehicle wreck early Tuesday on Ogeechee Road, but when they arrived, there was no driver.

A white car crashed into a light post around 3 a.m. on Ogeechee Road at W 41st Street in Savannah.

Georgia Power had to be called out to cut the power and replace the damaged post.

Police say the crash woke up a lot of neighbors there and when the first officers arrived on scene there was no one in or around the vehicle. Officers are not sure if there were more than one person in the vehicle at the time of the crash, but they assume the person driving fled the scene.

Officials do not believe there were any injuries involved since the driver walked away from the crash. They are not sure what caused the car to hit the pole at this time. The impact did cause damage to the pole and the power had to be cut off, but only briefly. Police also had to shut down Ogeechee Rd. right at W 41st St. for about half an hour, but it has since reopened.

The crash is under investigation.
