April 25-- Wednesday's wreck in Higgston claimed its second life last night.
Officials confirm that David Winge died at Memorial Medical Center in Savannah where he had been taken after a collision which killed his wife, Patti, at noon Wednesday.
The driver of the second vehicle, Erik Hall of Vidalia, was injured and taken to Meadows Health where he is in intensive care.
Georgia State Patrol Sergeant First Class Eric Wilkes says a pickup truck driven by Hall was traveling east on Sawmill Road when it ran a stop sign at the intersection with Highway 15 and T-boned the Toyota 4-Runner traveling south on Highway 15 being driven by David Winge. His wife was in the front passenger's seat.
The force of the collision drove the Toyota to sideswipe the church sign of the Higgston Baptist Church, which sits at the intersection, and to collide with the church's northern brick wall. The truck caught fire.
David Winge is the Service Manager at Webster Motor Company. He and his wife were returning from lunch at Big Al's at the time of the accident, according to SFC Wilkes.
