Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are continuing to investigate a car crash that shut down the intersection of 39th and Bull Streets early Monday morning.

The crash happened around 11:24 Sunday night. Detectives say the car involved in the crash appeared to be speeding away from a police officer who was not following the driver.

The driver of the car, 20-year-old Baheem Frazier, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center then arrested. He was charged with failure to stop at a stop sign, reckless driving, eluding police officers and driving without a license.

Central Precinct patrol officer first attempted to stop the red Mazda for running a stop sign near Frazier's residence when the driver sped away. The officer discontinued the traffic stop and turned away.

The Mazda, however, continued to speed east on West 39th Street, running stop signs at each intersection, until it crashed into a utility pole and fire hydrant on the east side of Bull Street and into a parked pickup truck.

The force of the crash removed the bottom half of the utility pole, leaving the top half dangling from power lines, knocked the hydrant away from its piping, and left the Mazda positioned vertically on its front end against the pickup.

The pickup was knocked into a car parked in front of it. The intersection was shut down more than seven hours Monday morning as utility crews replaced the pole and hydrant. The investigation continues.
