SAVANNAH, GA (WSAV) – The Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) of Savannah-Chatham Police Department need the communities help identifying the suspects that were involved in a car crash near Alabama Ave. and New Jersey Street around 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

The crash injured Melquia Singleton and a 6-year-old boy.

Police responded to the scene and found an unoccupied 2010 Toyota Avalon and a 2006 Chevrolet Suburban had collided. According to a release from Metro, Singleton who was driving the SUV, had been partially ejected from her vehicle.

The Suburban had six passengers between the ages of 17 and 1.

Singleton was taken to Memorial in critical condition along with her 6-year-old passenger. A 13-year-old and 9-year-old were also taken to Memorial with non-life threatening injuries.

The three remaining passengers were unharmed.

Initial investigation shows that Singleton was traveling east in the 2100 block of Alabama when an Avalon failed to yield at a stop sign at Alabama and New Jersey Street. It then collided with Singleton’s Subruban, causing the SUV to spin and roll over.

The occupants of the Avalon ran from the scene on foot without seeking help for Singleton and her passengers.

The release goes on to say that the Avalon was reported stolen near LaRoach Avenue and LaRoach Court in the early morning of November 30.

MAIT detectives believe the Avalon was occupied by at least two suspects. One suspect is described as a black male, with an Afro haircut, wearing all black clothing. This suspect may be a juvenile.

MAIT continues to investigate. Anyone with information on this incident or the suspects should contact the SCMPD tip line by dialing (912) 525-3124.

Information may also be forwarded to CrimeStoppers at (912) 234-2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
