SAVANNAH, GA. (April 5, 2014): A Savannah man is in serious condition after he was struck by a car while he was sitting on a bench in Forsyth Park on Friday afternoon.
Kenneth Roebuck II, 52, of a Dianne McKenzie Way address was transported to Memorial University Medical Center with two broken legs after the 2:45 p.m. accident at Bull and Gaston streets.
Officers with the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) said he was struck by a 2006 Mazda driven by Yvette Grogins, 52.
She was exiting a driveway to turn east onto Gaston Street and lost control when she accelerated to avoid an approaching vehicle. The Mazda overran a curb on the north side of the park, crossed the sidewalk and struck the bench where Roebuck was sitting after riding his bicycle.
MAIT continues to investigate.
