Waters Ave. wreck leaves man in critical condition

Posted on Fri, Mar 8, 2013 at 11:01 AM

A 22-year-old Savannah man is in serious condition after the car he was driving crashed into a tree on Waters Avenue this morning.

Tyrone Griffin was driving north on Waters near Althea Parkway at 3:11 a.m. when the 1999 Honda Accord crossed the center line into the southbound lane. Police say he overcorrected and lost control of the car which slid back across the northbound lane and into a tree.

Extrication units from the Savannah Fire Department dismantled the car to remove the victim who was transported to Memorial University Medical Center.

The Major Accident Investigation Team of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the accident.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
