SAVANNAH, GA. (March 27, 2014): A woman and her three small children escaped serious injury this morning when their stalled car was struck by an SUV on the Truman Expressway.

Tamela Royal, 26, and her children were transported to Memorial University Medical Center after the 7:48 a.m. crash just north of Eisenhower Drive. They were treated for minor injuries.

She was driving a Honda sedan that has run out of gas on the expressway in the northbound entrance lane from Eisenhower Drive. The Honda was rear-ended by a Lincoln Navigator that was merging onto the highway, driven by a 42-year-old Savannah woman.

The Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department continues to investigate.
