Witnesses said Brooke Deegan’s purple Chrysler PT Cruiser was headed north along the 300 block of Graham Bridge Road when the Cruiser collided with a southbound burgundy Ford Expedition driven by Edwin Davis. Deegan could not open her door and crawled out the back of the vehicle.

“Oh my God,” exclaimed one of Deegan’s relatives as she arrived at the scene. The front left portion of the Cruiser was smashed in.

Davis was charged with crossing the double yellow line in the incident.

Davis of the Expedition was pinned inside his vehicle. Personnel from Richmond County Rescue Squad used tools to extricate the man from the vehicle. Firefighters from Northside Volunteer Fire Department then aided personnel from FirstHealth EMS and Richmond County Rescue Squad in getting Davis onto the gurney and into the back of a FirstHealth ambulance.
