SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — Police are investigating a deadly crash where a person was hit on Interstate 95.
Pooler Police tell WSAV the deadly wreck happened Tuesday as emergency crews were working a different wreck on the interstate.
We’ve learned from witnesses, as a wreck involving a rolled-over big rig was being cleared, the driver of an SUV traveling at a high speed, took the emergency lane past stopped traffic.
According to a witness who was stuck in traffic, that driver hit a pedestrian who was outside of their vehicle on the interstate.
