On the Security Scene

Vehicle Accidents

On Tuesday, July 2, Landings Association Security, Chatham Emergency Services (CES), and Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) responded to a motor vehicle crash involving three vehicles and which resulted in minor injuries involving two residents and a non-resident at the intersection of Diamond Causeway and Green Island Road. The non-resident driver was traveling north/east on Diamond Causeway when she failed to stop at the stop sign and struck a vehicle which had just entered the intersection from Green Island Road. The collision sent the vehicle into the outbound traffic lanes and caused it to strike a vehicle exiting the Main Gate. All parties were treated for injuries at the scene and did not require transport to the hospital. All vehicles sustained significant damage. Two of the vehicles were removed from the scene by a tow truck, and the third was removed from the scene by the resident’s husband. The non-resident driver traveling north/east on Diamond Causeway was cited for failure to stop at a stop sign.

Security and CCPD responded to another motor vehicle crash at the Main Gate which occurred earlier in the day on Tuesday, July 2. A resident informed Security personnel that the driver of a white vehicle had backed into his vehicle and then left the scene. The resident provided officers with a license plate number, and staff identified the fleeing vehicle’s owner and made contact with the driver’s mother. Upon the driver’s mother contacting him, he returned to the scene and was interviewed by CCPD Officers. A witness to the accident stated that the driver of the white vehicle was driving aggressively prior to the incident. The witness further stated that he had a verbal altercation with the driver after being cut off by him. CCPD is investigating the incident, and no citations have been issued at this time.
