TIU Investigates Fatal Single-Vehicle Crash on Coffee Bluff Road
SAVANNAH, GA (July 14, 2020) – Savannah Police’s Traffic Investigation Unit is a single-vehicle crash that resulted in the death of a 24-year-old Savannah man.
Around 7 p.m. July 13 officers responded to Coffee Bluff Road at Old Coffee Bluff Road and discovered a Toyota Camry crashed into a utility pole.
According to a preliminary investigation, Delaion Woodbury was traveling north on Coffee Bluff Road at a high rate of speed when he entered a curve and went off the right side of the road. The vehicle crossed into the southbound lane. Woodbury then overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle. This resulted in the vehicle sliding across the shoulder and crashing into a utility pole on the driver’s side door. Woodbury died as a result of the crash.
Due to damages to the utility pole and required repairs, the roadway remained closed to traffic until around 3 a.m. today.
