Posted on Wed, Mar 6, 2013 at 1:17 PM

A Savannah woman died Thursday morning when the car she was driving crashed into a fence, sign and tree on Ferguson Avenue.

Police say Jessica J. Strieber, 28, died instantly when the 2006 Suzuki Forenza she was driving left the right side of Ferguson between Lehigh Avenue and Diamond Causeway at 2:25 a.m.

The collision knocked down a brick fence column, a traffic sign and a small tree before the car flipped over in a grassy area. Southside Fire rescue units had to remove pieces of the car to free the driver who had been declared dead at the scene.

Major Accident Investigations Team officers from Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department said the vehicle had crossed the center line into the south bound lane and the driver overcorrected, sending it out of control.
