Man Suffers From Two Broken Legs After Car Slams Into Park Bench He Was Sitting On

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Police say a man was hospitalized with two broken legs after a car careened into a park and collided with him as he sat on a park bench.

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police say 52-year-old Kenneth Roebuck II was sitting on the bench in Forsyth Park on Friday afternoon after riding his bicycle. They say a Mazda ran over a curb on the north side of the park and struck the bench. Police say the driver of the Mazda had accelerated to avoid an approaching vehicle.

Roebuck was taken to Memorial University Medical Center to be treated for his broken legs.
