SAVANNAH, GA (June 16, 2015): Traffic officers from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department have joined the investigation into a collision last Thursday in which a Florida woman died from injuries that initially were not expected to be life-threatening.
Cindy De Felippo, 50, of Tequesta, FL., died after being transported from the 8:58 p.m. crash at Abercorn Street and Deerfield Circle to St. Joseph’s Hospital.
She had been a passenger in a 1999 Toyota Camry driven by her husband, Anthony De Flippo, 52. Their car was struck on the passenger’s side by a 2004 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck as the Camry was turning left from Abercorn into Deerfield Road. The pickup was driven by Johnny Godbee, 62, of Savannah.
