A woman and her three small children "escaped serious injury this morning when their stalled car was struck by an SUV on the Truman Expressway," a police spokesman says.
Tamela Royal, 26, and her children were transported to Memorial University Medical Center after the 7:48 a.m. crash just north of Eisenhower Drive. They were treated for minor injuries.
"She was driving a Honda sedan that has run out of gas on the expressway in the northbound entrance lane from Eisenhower Drive," police says. "The Honda was rear-ended by a Lincoln Navigator that was merging onto the highway, driven by a 42-year-old Savannah woman."
