Crash injures bicyclist

Posted on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 8:15 PM

Police Traffic Investigators temporarily shut down part of Montgomery Street following a collision between a pickup truck and bicycle that landed one man in the hospital.

At 8:59 a.m. officers responded to reports of an accident with injuries at northbound Montgomery Street and 58th Street. Officers discovered 50-year-old Leonard Williams of the 600 block of W. 38th Street, suffering from injuries sustained when a Ford Ranger driven by 76-year-old Washington Brown Jr. of the 800 block of West 44Street, struck his bike.

Investigators believe Williams lost control of his bicycle and swerved into the path of the pickup truck, while traveling in the same direction.

Williams was transported to Memorial Medical Center in serious condition. Brown was unharmed.

But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.

  • Editor's Note: Public schools and the Stockholm Syndrome

    Being a public school parent is like being unhappily married: You’re so deeply invested you’re often the last to see that it isn’t working out. Then there’s a crushing realization that the marriage is irretrievably broken and you can never get those years back.
