SAVANNAH, GA (February 20, 2015): Major Accident investigation Team (MAIT) officers from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department have narrowed their search for a truck involved in a Jan. 4 hit and run to a red Chevrolet.

Investigators are looking for a red 1999 or 2000 Chevrolet Silverado, Tahoe or Suburban with damage to its front end on the right side as the vehicle that struck and killed a Florida man on Abercorn Street that Sunday night.

Peter Meyers, 72, of Vero Beach, FL, was found on the ground in front of a motel on the 5700 block of Abercorn about 10:30 p.m.  He was walking across Abercorn at the time he was struck and thrown into shrubbery. The incident could have taken place before, during or after a rain storm earlier in the evening.

MAIT investigators also continue to investigate two other fatal hit and run cases:

  • Felicia Wilder was struck and killed by a vehicle, possibly a dark colored 2011-2012Nissan Versa, at MLK Boulevard and Morris Brown Street on April 21, 2014.
  • Jermaine Butler, 42, of the 2200 block of Beaumont Drive, was found on Howard Foss drive on May 3, 2014. A General Motors-produced vehicle struck him as he was walking near Howard Foss Court about midnight. The vehicle did not stop. The collision left Butler lying in the darkened street where he was struck by a second vehicle driven by a Savannah woman. That driver stopped to await police. Butler was declared dead on the scene.

Investigators are asking that anyone who may have seen the the vehicles or knows anything about the incidents call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
