Veterans Pkwy reopens after fatal crash

Posted: Updated:

Emergency crews responded to a bad two-vehicle wreck on Veterans Parkway in Savannah overnight that left one person dead and another in critical condition.

It happened around 2:30 a.m. Thursday on Veterans Pkwy northbound exactly 1-mile before the Chatham Pkwy exit. Officials say two people were involved in the crash. One person was trapped and emergency personnel had to use the Jaws of Life to cut them from the wreckage.

Officials say one was pronounced dead at the scene and the other was taken to the hospital in critical condition. There has been no update released on their status since the crash occurred.

Both lanes of Veterans Pkwy northbound were shut down for several hours as Savannah-Chatham Metro's Major Accident Investigation Team looked into the cause of the crash. The road re-opened around 6:40 a.m.

The crash remains under investigation.
