SAVANNAH, GA. (May 6, 2014): Accident investigators from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department continue to seek information on two vehicles that fled scenes after striking pedestrians and inflicting fatal injuries the past two weekends.
Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) officers are searching for a 2011-2012 Nissan Versa and a General Motors vehicle. Each may have damage to its front end.
The Versa is being sought in the investigation of an April 21incident on MLK Jr. Boulevard in which a woman was struck near Gaston Street just after midnight. The dark-colored Versa (a small hatchback sedan) was seen in the area.
The GM vehicle is being sought after a 42-year-old man was found dead on Howard Foss Drive in the Bacon Park/Sandfly area early Saturday morning. He had been struck by one vehicle and left in the roadway where he was hit by a passing car.
Anyone with information on the vehicles or drivers is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
