A grand jury has formally charged one driver in the death of Savannah Police Officer Anthony Christie, who died in 2018.

A Chatham County Grand Jury indicted 47-year-old Robert Brawner on multiple charges: 3 counts vehicular homicide, 3 counts serious injury by vehicle, 1 count reckless driving and 2 counts DUI.

According to the indictment, Brawner is accused of causing the initial crash on I-16.

In May 2018, Christie was called to that head-on collision on the interstate around 3:00 a.m. While he was assisting with traffic control for Brawner’s crash, a tractor-trailer driven by Charles Livingston hit the side of his Christie’s vehicle, causing critical injuries.

The police and Navy veteran later succumbed to injuries from the crash.

The indictment names Livingston, the driver of the tractor-trailer, for vehicular homicide and reckless driving, but the grand jury did not find enough evidence to indict him.
