On Thanksgiving morning, three men died after two separate traffic accidents on different ends of the county.
Mark Gunter, 57, of the 1200 block of Bridlewood Drive, died on scene about 2:30 a.m. when the Chevrolet Suburban he was driving southbound in the northbound lane of Veterans Parkway collided with a BMW near Chatham Parkway.
Anthony Davis, 25, of Quail Hollow Court West, driver of the BMW, was transported to Memorial University Medical Center where he died about 7:30 a.m.
In an earlier accident, Jonathan Edwards, 35, of a Bryan Wood Circle address, was killed when he was struck by a vehicle on Johnny Mercer Boulevard on Wilmington Island, just east of the Spencer Grayson Bridge over Turner’s Creek. Edwards was walking on the roadway when he was struck just after midnight. The vehicle did not stop.
Jessica Krebs, 25, of a Shamrock Circle address, was identified as the driver of the vehicle shortly after Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police were called to the scene. She called police from her residence to report her windshield had been broken. She has been charged with driving under the influence, hit and run with fatal injuries and first degree vehicular homicide.
