A man who ran a stop sign Saturday on Old River Road said his clutch failed, sending him crashing into another vehicle, according to Georgia State Patrol reports.

He was not injured, but the driver of the other vehicle was airlifted to a Savannah hospital.

Around 7:26 p.m., Scott L. Daughtry, 41, of Freeland Avenue in North Augusta, South Carolina, was driving a 2002 Dodge Ram, traveling west on Old River Road, approaching the intersection of Lakeview Road, when his clutch reportedly failed, according to GSP Post 45 reports.

He collided with a 2004 Ford Explorer driven by Joseph James Hardy, 65, of J. Bird Lane in Statesboro, who was driving south on Lakeview Road.

GSP officials did not have additional details on the accident or Hardy's condition Monday. The wreck remains under investigation, and no charges had been filed as of Monday.
