SAVANNAH, Ga. – SCMPD’s Major Accident Investigation Team continues to investigate the three vehicle crash that killed one elderly woman Wednesday morning.

It happened on Highway 80 near Macceo Drive just before 10:00am.  Investigators say 72-year-old Leola Ellison was heading eastbound on 80 when she made a sudden left hand turn across the center turn lane.

She collided with a Tyota Tocoma driven by 51-year-old Walter Schaaf who was heading westbound.  Schaaf was spun and was hit by a third car.

Ellison was pronounced dead at the scene.  Schaaf was transported to Memorial with non-life threatening injuries.

No other injuries were reported.

Both lanes of Highway 80 are back open.
