A Savannah man is in serious condition after he was struck by a car while he was sitting on a bench in Forsyth Park Friday afternoon.
Kenneth Roebuck II, 52, of a Dianne McKenzie Way address was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with two broken legs after the 2:45 p.m. accident at Bull and Gaston streets.
Police say he was struck by a 2006 Mazda driven by Yvette Grogins, 52, who "was exiting a driveway to turn east onto Gaston Street and lost control when she accelerated to avoid an approaching vehicle," police say.
"The Mazda overran a curb on the north side of the park, crossed the sidewalk and struck the bench where Roebuck was sitting after riding his bicycle."
