  Savannah Chatham Metro Police say three men died after two separate traffic accidents Thursday morning on different ends of the county. 

  Police say just after midnight, 35-year-old Jonathan Edwards was struck and killed as he walked down Johnny Mercer Boulevard on Wilmington Island. 

  The vehicle that struck him did not stop, according to police. 

  25-year-old Jessica Krebs was identified as the driver of the vehicle shortly after Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police were called to the scene.

  Police say Krebs called them from her home to report her windshield had been broken. She's now charged with driving under the influence, hit and run with fatal injuries and first degree vehicular homicide.

 Police say later in the morning 57-year-old Mark Gunter of the 1200 Block of Brindlewood Drive was killed when the Chevrolet Suburban he was driving down Veterans Parkway collided with a BMW near Chatham Parkway around 2:30am.

   The driver of the BMW, 25-year-old Anthony Davis of Quail hollow Court West was transported to the hospital where he died hours later.

  SCMPD's Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) continues to investigate both accidents.
