Posted By on Thu, Jan 10, 2019 at 3:06 PM

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.”

Pete was originally from Orlando, Florida where he retired from a Florida municipality. He worked with Chatham County for five years before joining the City of Savannah.

    Stacey Abrams appears ready to break that mold. Not only because she’s notably not a member of an established political family, but because among other positive qualities, she likes campaigning, and she’s really good at it.
