Officials have identified the driver killed in a crash on Bay Street Monday.

56-year-old Stevie Rufus Cox has been identified as the deceased, according to the Savannah Police Department.

A preliminary investigation revealed that he possibly suffered a medical emergency that resulted in him losing control of the vehicle.

Around 6:10 p.m. on March 27, Cox was driving a 2007 Crown Victoria taxi cab east in the 100 block of W. Bay Street when he crossed into the right eastbound lane and left the roadway.

The cab struck multiple barriers separating the road from the pedestrian walkway before re-entering the travel lanes and striking the side of a GMC Yukon.

Cox was transported to Memorial Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.

No other injuries were reported in the crash.
