SAVANNAH, GA (May 12, 2013): A Dublin man was killed and two women in the car with him were in serious condition today after a multi-vehicle crash on U.S. 80 East Saturday.
Ben McDaniel, 25, died at Memorial University Medical Center after the 5:43 p.m. crash 1.5 miles west of Fort Pulaski. Diana McGrady, 51, who was driving one of the vehicles involved in the crash, and Grace McDaniel, 18, a passenger in the car, remained in serious condition. Both women also are from Dublin.
Alexander Gunn, 18, of a Wren Court address, and Taylor Brown, 18, of King George Boulevard, both of Savannah and occupants of another vehicle, were transported to Memorial University Medical Center for treatment of minor injuries after the 5:43 p.m. collision.
Officers with Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) found that Gunn was traveling eastbound when he suffered a medical condition. The pickup truck he was driving crossed the center line and sideswiped a pickup driven by James Hammond, 45, of Ellabell, GA, who was pulling a boat and trailer.
Gunn’s pickup then crashed head-on into the car driven by McGrady.
MAIT continues to investigate.
