Upon arrival, they discovered the crash occurred as a vehicle driven by 30-year-old Santa Kami, of Kansas City, Kansas, was traveling southbound on Route D about three miles northeast of Savannah when Kami’s vehicle crossed the center line and struck a vehicle head-on driven by Savannah resident Susan Arn, 64. Both vehicles came to rest on their wheels in the northbound lane of Route D, with Kami’s vehicle facing southbound and Arn’s vehicle pointed north.
