One Injured in Multi-vehicle Wreck

A Savannah man is recovering from serious injuries after a multiple-vehicle accident on the city's east side overnight.

Just after midnight, witnesses tell us a man driving a Dodge pickup truck at a high rate of speed lost control of the vehicle heading east on Florida Avenue. The truck slammed first into a parked pickup truck a block from Pennsylvania Avenue. The impact forced that pickup into a parked Jeep and debris flew across the street hitting a man standing by a car.

The Dodge truck spun around and slid almost a half a block before coming to rest in the middle of the street.

Witnesses say it appears the driver was thrown through the windshield onto the street. He was rushed to Memorial Health.

Savannah-Chatham accident investigators are still trying to find out what led to the accident.
