  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.
