The identities of the people involved in the Sunday night wreck that ended up in a confrontation with police and an injured motorcyclist were released Monday morning.
Hinesville police traffic accident investigator Cpl. Les Patton said Quincy Andrew, 36, was riding a motorcycle westbound on E.G. Miles Parkway at 8:46 p.m. when Rochelle Hodge, 37, who was traveling eastbound with her daughter, Tea Morgan, 18, attempted to make a left turn into the parking lot of McDonald’s.
When the vehicles collided, Andrew’s motorcycle slid partially under the 2005 Lincoln Town Car, and he sustained serious injuries to his lower limbs.
Hodge and Morgan left the vehicle and ran onto McDowell Road, where they were later found hiding in a backyard, police said.
Morgan got into a scuffle with Hinesville police Officer Dennis Poulsen, who had to physically restrain her, according to police.
Hinesville police Sgt. Mike Gosseck said Hodge was placed in the back of a patrol vehicle where she kicked out a window of the patrol car. She was taken to the Liberty County Jail.
Gosseck said officers discovered what appeared to be a felony amount of marijuana in Hodge’s purse. A search of the vehicle, which did not belong to Hodge but has not been reported stolen, led to the recovery of a handgun that had been reported stolen, he said.
Hodge and Morgan face several charges.
Andrews was taken to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah, where his condition was not immediately available.
