SAVANNAH, GA (February 28, 2016): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team responded to a vehicular accident on DeRenne Avenue near Reynolds Street, that fatally injured Thadea Williams, 30, of Stone Mountain, Georgia on Sunday, Feb. 28.
The wreck occurred at about 3:13 a.m. Williams was the front seat passenger in an eastbound Hyundai Accent driven by Antiqua Walker, 31, of Lithonia, Georgia. Williams and Walker reportedly pulled into the left turn lane, then exited the vehicle to assess the cause of a check-engine notification. At that time, Jacoby Minor, 35, of Savannah also was driving east on DeRenne Avenue in a Chevrolet Camero, when he struck Williams with the vehicle.
A passenger in the Camero immediately placed Williams in the car, driving her to Candler Hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.
This is an ongoing MAIT investigation.
