Savannah Police’s Traffic Investigation Unit is investigating a work-related accident on Jan. 9 that resulted in the death of a City of Savannah employee.
"About 3:45 p.m. officers responded to the city lot on Sycamore Drive and discovered an employee with the City of Savannah’s Public Works & Water Resources Department deceased. The employee was identified as Peter Solomon, 62," the City reports.
Solomon was on the Streets Maintenance crew within the Public Works & Water Resources Department.
“We’ve lost a member of our family,” says City Manager Rob Hernandez. “It’s a tragedy. It’s never something we want to see happen. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Mr. Solomon.”
