SAVANNAH, GA (March 18, 2018) – Savannah Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating a vehicle vs. motorcycle crash that occurred on Interstate 95 near exit 104 earlier today.

At around 2:20 p.m., Kayton Smith, in a Chevrolet Blazer, was traveling north on I-95 near the end of the acceleration lane from Pooler Parkway, when a dark colored mid-sized vehicle merged into the lane Smith was occupying. The vehicle caused Smith to brake and turn the wheel suddenly to the left, causing him to lose control and stop across the left and center lane of northbound I-95. Daniel Hampton, driving a Harley Davidson, was also in the northbound lane and was unable to avoid Smith’s vehicle.

Hampton sustained serious injuries.
