SAVANNAH, GA (November 20, 2019) – Savannah Police’s Traffic Investigations Unit (TIU) is investigating a crash that seriously injured a pedestrian yesterday evening.

At around 6 p.m. on Nov. 19, Jeevankanth Vaddi, 35, was crossing Hodgson Memorial Drive, while at the same time Casie Daugherty, 29, was traveling south on that road. Due to Vaddi wearing dark clothing and walking in a shadowed area that was not in a crosswalk, Daugherty could not see Vaddi and struck him with her vehicle.

Vaddi sustained serious injuries and was transported to an area hospital. The TIU continues to investigate this crash.
