SAVANNAH, GA (August 22, 2019) – Savannah Police’s Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating a two-vehicle crash that resulted in serious injuries to one driver and the closure of Interstate-16 for several hours on Aug. 21.
According to a preliminary investigation, Anthony Chastulik Jr., 66, of Pooler, who was driving a Hummer H3, and Johnathan Coleman, 28, of Savannah, who was driving a tractor trailer, were both traveling west on I-16 near Chatham Parkway around 3 p.m. For unknown reasons, the Hummer entered the other driver’s lane, resulting in the Hummer striking near the tractor trailer’s driver door.
