Man in critical condition after bridge wreck

Posted By on Sat, Mar 15, 2014 at 12:23 PM

The St. Patrick’s Day celebration kicked off Friday night on a depressing note, when a head-on collision on the Back River bridge, just north of the Talmadge Bridge, closed both lanes over the Savannah River for several hours.

The three-vehicle wreck happened when a car headed from South Carolina toward Savannah attempted to pass another car. The driver of that car, John David Maney, 54, of the 100 block of Stafford Road, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center after the 7:06 p.m. collision. He is listed in critical condition.

His Ford Escort was headed south on U.S. 17 toward the Talmadge Memorial Bridge when the Escort crossed the center line and collided with a Ford Explorer SUV being driven northbound by a Savannah woman.

  • Editor's Note: The real crime is our poverty rate

    The City of Savannah still remains at a stubborn 26-28 percent poverty rate. Poverty disproportionately impacts African Americans, also the community most disproportionately impacted by crime. This is no coincidence and is hardly rocket science, but for some reason many people have problems connecting the dots.
