POOLER, Ga. (WSAV) — Police ask the public for help in their investigation of an April 1st incident on Interstate 16 near the Interstate 95 ramp that led to multiple collisions. Pooler Police hope someone can help them identify a suspect vehicle.

According to the Pooler Police Department, a truck “initiated a chain reaction causing two serious accidents.”

Considered a hit and run, the incident unfolded around 1:30 p.m. on April 1, just past mile marker 157 and westbound lanes of I-16.

Pooler Police ask anyone traveling in the area at the time and that may have witnessed the accidents or the newer model silver Ford F-150 to call the Pooler Police Traffic Department at (912) 748-7333 or to contact Officer Daugherty at cdaugherty@pooler-ga.gov.

Police added that the truck may have damage to the left front bumper or left side.

“We are hoping someone saw the truck’s continued direction of travel, license plate, or further description of the truck,” the department stated. “Thank you, Pooler, we always appreciate your assistance.”
