What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
A man and woman were injured in a single-vehicle car crash about 1 p.m. Tuesday on I-95 near the Georgia/South Carolina border, according to a Savannah Police Department news release.
A 67-year-old man from Hallwood, Virginia, was driving a Ford E350 van on I-95 near the Jimmy DeLoach Parkway exit when the driver-side rear tire blew out, the release said. He lost control of the vehicle, which then spun and overturned.
Both he and the passenger a 50-year-old woman from Miami, Florida, were taken to Memorial Medical Center for their treatment, according to the release. The woman sustained serious injuries from the crash, police say.
They were both wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
All northbound lanes were closed after the accident and traffic was diverted off the interstate for about five hours.
