SAVANNAH, GA (September 22, 2014): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are investigating an early morning crash that left a Savannah woman in critical condition and a Garden City man charged with DUI.
Jessica Brown, 21, of a Rosa Lane address, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center after the 2:05 a.m. crash in the westbound lanes of Abercorn Extension just west of Rio Road.
Wesley Felton Bragg, 30, of a Smith Avenue address in Garden City, was charged with driving under the influence after the Ford Explorer he was driving was stopped by workers at a construction project underway at the time. He received non-life threatening injuries and was treated at Memorial before being transported to the Chatham County Detention Center.
Officers of the Metro Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) found that Brown was driving west bound in the center lane of Abercorn Extension where construction crews had closed the two outer lanes with construction barrels for an asphalt project.
Bragg was traveling in the same direction at a high rate of speed and struck several of the barrels before striking the rear of the Nissan Versa Ms Brown was driving. The Nissan turned sideways and struck the rear of a steam roller.
MAIT continues to investigate the incident.
