The driver of the Chevy truck was cited.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital by Chatham EMS just to be checked out.

The Chatham County Police Department, Chatham County Sheriff's Office, Savannah Fire & Chatham EMS all responded to the scene.

Police directed traffic through the intersection while crews worked to clear the scene. The wreck has since been cleared and the intersection is back open to traffic.

The crash remains under investigation.
