SAVANNAH, GA (February 28, 2019) – Savannah Police’s Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating a vehicle versus pedestrian crash that occurred on February 27.

At around 1:40 p.m., Joseph Barry, 50, in a Nissan crossover, was traveling north on White Bluff Road, approaching Hampstead Avenue. He observed the pedestrian, identified as Linda Williams, 72, standing by the side of the road, not in a crosswalk. A preliminary investigation revealed that Williams walked out in front of Barry’s vehicle, which did not give Barry the opportunity to stop. His vehicle struck Williams, and she was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

The TIU continues to investigate this crash.
