Man in stable condition after crashing stolen car

Posted: Updated:

A Savannah man remains under guard at a hospital after he crashed a stolen car while trying to avoid a police officer Wednesday morning.

Ronald Antwan Grady, 30, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center and was listed in stable condition following surgery.

The crash happened at 10:28 a.m. at Augusta Avenue and Millen Street.

Downtown Precinct Officers were patrolling the west Savannah area in search of Grady after he abandoned the stolen red Ford Focus he had driven through the intersection of Augusta Avenue and Millen Street to avoid a traffic officer.

MAIT officers said Grady was traveling eastbound at a high rate of speed on Augusta Avenue when he lost control and struck a utility pole. The impact caused the car to spin into a tree and another pole and came to a rest on the driver's door.

The car was reported stolen from a business on West 51st Street on Tuesday after an employee left the keys in the ignition. The car was destroyed in the crash.

Grady was released from prison on Nov. 4 after serving a 10-year sentence for burglary, theft, aggravated assault and kidnapping in 2003.
