Savannah-Chatham Metro’s Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating a collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle Sunday night on Ogeechee Road that left the motorcyclist seriously injured.

SCMPD officials say officers responded to Ogeechee Road at Interstate-516 around 8 p.m. An initial investigation revealed Dawn Billotte, 47, was traveling north on Ogeechee Road approaching I-516 in a Honda Civic when she attempted to get onto the northbound I-516 on-ramp. Willie Johnson Jr., 53, who was traveling south on Ogeechee Road on a Honda CBR 900 motorcycle, attempted to brake to avoid being struck by the Civic but was unsuccessful.

Johnson was transported to a hospital with serious injuries.

Police say Billotte was arrested for driving under the influence, failure to yield turning left and serious injury by motor vehicle.

The crash remains under investigation.
