Vehicle Accidents

Landings Security responded to Tidewater Way and Landings Way North for a report of a vehicle striking a light pole and leaving the scene on Saturday, January 11. The responding officer cleared the roadway of debris, and Georgia Power was dispatched to repair the pole. Shortly after, Security received a report that the same vehicle had struck the guard rail on the Diamond Causeway bridge. CES and CCPD were already on the scene. The driver was treated on scene and transported to the hospital for further evaluation. A witness to the incident provided additional details of the events leading up to the collision with the light pole and guard rail, which have been included in the initial report. The incident may have been related to medical issues.

On Saturday, January 11, Landings Security, CES, and CCPD responded to a vehicle versus golf cart accident at the intersection of Diamond Causeway and Lake Street between two residents. The driver of the vehicle advised that he was attempting to make a right turn onto Lake Street when he struck the golf cart. The driver of the golf cart was transported to the hospital for injuries sustained during the accident. CCPD cited the driver of the vehicle for failure to yield.

Landings Security, CES, and CCPD responded to a two-vehicle accident between a resident and a postal worker at Landings Way South and Tidewater Way. The postal worker advised that he was new to the route and thought the intersection was a four-way stop. After stopping, he proceeded into the intersection without realizing the other vehicle was not stopping. One person was transported to the hospital, and one person was treated on scene for minor injuries. The postal worker was found at fault for the accident and issued a citation.

On Monday, January 13, Landings Security and CCPD responded to Diamond Causeway and Westcross Road for a three-vehicle accident between a Landings Club employee and two residents. The first driver was traveling eastbound (toward the Main Gate) when the second driver attempted to turn left into Oakridge. The first driver struck the rear of the second driver’s vehicle causing the second driver to swerve into the opposite lane. The second driver then collided with a third vehicle which was stopped at the red light. No one was injured as a result of the accident, and the vehicles sustained minor damages but still were drivable.

Dog Attack

A resident contacted Landings Security on Sunday, January 12, to report a dog attack that occurred earlier in the day while she and her husband were golfing on the Palmetto course. The resident stated that they were walking between Palmetto 3 and 4 and were near the backyard of a residence when two dogs jumped off the back deck and charged at her husband. One of the dogs bit her husband on the calf. The owner of the dogs also was on the back deck at the time and witnessed the incident. The resident stated that she briefly spoke with the dogs’ owner who was very apologetic and advised that the dog was up-to-date on all his shots. At the time of the report, the resident indicated that she and her husband were at the hospital having the wound treated. Animal Services was notified and will perform a follow-up investigation.
