Vehicle Accident

Landings Security and Chatham Emergency Services (CES) responded to the intersection of Diamond Causeway and McWhorter Drive for a report of a single-vehicle accident. A witness to the accident stated he was traveling on McWhorter Drive toward the intersection and noticed the vehicle in front of him was swerving and driving along the grassy area of the road. The vehicle then struck the stop sign and knocked it out of the ground. The driver, who was identified as a Landings resident, was disoriented and transported to the hospital for treatment. The vehicle sustained minor damages and was removed from the scene by a friend. The cause of the accident is unknown. The Georgia Department of Transportation and Chatham County were notified about the stop sign.

Hit and Run Accident

On Sunday, March 29, Landings Security responded to Brandenberry Road near Candlewicke Lane for a report of a vehicle striking and being stuck on a fire hydrant. Upon arrival, officers observed three vehicles leaving the area, and one matched the description provided by a witness to the incident. Security was able to identify the driver of the vehicle before it left the area. The witness reported seeing another vehicle utilizing a jack to lift the vehicle off the fire hydrant. CES responded to the area to inspect the fire hydrant. Although the hydrant had water flow, CES personnel advised that the hydrant was compromised as a result of the accident, which could lead to a failure when needed. Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) was notified, and the owner of the vehicle was contacted to return to the scene. CCPD issued a citation for the hit and run to the driver.

Bicycle Accident

Landings Security and CES responded to Bartram Road for a report of a bicycle accident on Monday, March 30. The individual had fallen off her bicycle and sustained injuries. The cause of the accident is unknown, and the woman was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Suspicious Incident

On Sunday, March 29, Landings Security responded to a residence on Coventry Close for a report of a suspicious incident. The resident stated that four dead fish had been placed inside his mailbox. Security responded to the area multiple times over the weekend for reports of juveniles fishing in a lagoon adjacent to their property. The complainant believes the fish may have been placed in his mailbox as a result. There were no physical damages to the mailbox, and there were no similar reports in the area. The residents are fairly new to The Landings and were provided clarification on a property owner’s ability to fish on the non-golf side of the lagoon within the easement.
