The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police major accident investigation team is looking into a three-vehicle wreck that claimed the life of a Savannah man Tuesday afternoon.
According to the SCMPD, Alvin Martin, 43, was northbound on Interstate 516 just after 2 p.m. Tuesday in a Lincoln Town Car. Laura Ramos, 33, of Port Wentworth also was headed north on I-516 toward Garden City in a Jeep Wrangler. Martin and Ramos were stopped in traffic in the left lane.
Bryant Williford, 21, of Clyo was driving north in the left lane of I-516 in a Toyota Tundra, when he crossed an overpass and failed to fully stop before crashing into the rear of Martin’s vehicle.
The impact shoved Martin’s vehicle into the rear of Ramos’ vehicle, causing it to spin. This caused both Williford’s and Martin’s vehicles to collide with the median guardrail.
Martin died at the scene. No additional injuries were reported.
This is an ongoing MAIT investigation.
