CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department's Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating after one person was seriously injured following a car single-vehicle crash Thursday night on Truman Parkway.

Officials say at around 10:20 p.m., 55-year-old Ervin Miller was driving in the southbound lanes when he lost control of his vehicle and crossed the median, causing his car to roll.

A Georgia State Patrol trooper at the scene said Miller was not wearing a seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle. He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

Truman Parkway was closed in both directions for some time between Montgomery Cross Road and Whitefield Avenue. The wreck has since been cleared and all lanes are back open.

The Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department's TIU and GSP responded.

The investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
