SAVANNAH, GA (April 1, 2013): Three drivers were transported for treatment of injuries after a three-car crash on the Back River Bridge that spawned at least two other, less serious collisions.
Ross Glatzer, 66, and Amiee Corley, 21, both of Bluffton, were airlifted by helicopter to Memorial University Medical Center after the 10 a.m. crash. He was listed in serious condition and she was treated for injuries to her leg. Both drivers were extricated by Savannah Fire.
A third driver, Faye Wiggs, 62, of Chesapeak, VA, was transported by ambulance to Memorial where she was treated and released.
Officers of the Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department said Glatzer was traveling south toward Savannah when his SUV crossed the center line and sideswiped a car driven by Ms. Wiggs.
The SUV was then struck by a Lexus driven by Ms. Corley.
At least two other collisions took place on the bridge involving vehicles that did not stop in time. Several people were treated by Southside EMS.
MAIT continues to investigate.
