SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Savannah Police Department is investigating a crash on Mohawk Street that left one person seriously injured.
Police are now searching for one of the drivers who ran from the scene.
Around 5 p.m. Wednesday, SPD says a Ford F-150 was attempting to turn left onto Mohawk Loop off of Mohawk Street when a 2011 Mercedes C250 hit the driver-side of the truck. It appears the Mercedes was attempting to pass the F-150 at a high rate of speed in a no-passing zone.
SPD says the impact caused the Ford to spin out in the road while the Mercedes continued for a short distance.
The driver of the Mercedes, identified only as a Black male, then left the crash site, according to Savannah Police. The department identified the passenger as Naudia Johnson, 26, of Garden City.
Johnson was taken to a hospital for treatment of serious injuries. The driver of the truck wasn’t hurt.
