A Hinesville Police officer, who was injured Friday morning in an accident with an alleged drunk driver, needed only treatment at a hospital and has been released.
Hinesville PD traffic accident investigators Lt. Bill Kirkendall and Cpl. Les Patton, said Officer Joshua Heath had finished his shift earlier and was riding a motorcycle home. At the intersection of Hendry Street/E.G. Miles Parkway and Gen. Screven Way around 1:20 a.m., a woman, later identified as Danyelle Cormaney, 24, allegedly turned her 2014 Chevy Camaro into the path of Heath’s motorcycle. Heath struck Cormaney’s car, throwing him off the bike.
Cormaney allegedly sped off, later running through Fort Stewart’s main gate without stopping. When MPs caught up with Cormaney and stopped her, a bulletin from the 911 center was out. It described her vehicle and gave her name, which had been provided by an acquaintance who had been at the same night spot as Cormaney and who was driving behind her when the accident, according to Patton.
She was arrested by the MPs. Cormaney, a soldier, is assigned to the installation.
Heath was taken to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah, treated for a broken ankle and wrist and released.
Cormaney has been charged with DUI, driving with no insurance, failure to yield and fleeing the scene of an accident by civilian authorities. She has been released to military custody.
