Pickup Truck Crashes Into Lawnmower In Savannah

A Savannah man is in critical condition after the riding lawnmower he was driving was struck by a pickup truck in the Sand Fly area of Chatham County Wednesday night.

Christopher James Martin, 21, was ejected from the lawnmower after the 10 p.m. collision on Norwood Avenue near Fox Chase Road. He was transported to Memorial University Medical Center.

Officers with the Major Accident investigation Team (MAIT) of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department found he had been driving the lawn mower eastbound on Norwood without the benefit of lights or reflectors at the time of the crash.

A red, 2005 Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by a 55-year-old Savannah man, proceeding in the same direction, collided with the lawnmower from behind.

MAIT continues to investigate the crash.
