    Statesboro Police are "actively investigating" a crash Saturday night that left a woman in critical condition, said Statesboro Police Capt. Wendell Turner.
    Two men are in custody, but charges have not yet been filed, as the investigation is still ongoing, he said.
    Det. Sgt. James Winskey is leading the investigation of the crash, which took place around 8:30 p.m. Saturday on Johnson Street, he said.
    A vehicle struck a walking pedestrian, then wrecked, slamming into a warehouse. One man involved fled the scene, but was apprehended, along with a second man, Turner said.
    He was unable to divulge additional details, citing reasons being that the investigation is still ongoing. Initial reports did not list the victim's name, but Turner said she was taken to a hospital in Savannah, and remained in critical condition Monday.
    Detectives are "actively investigating" the crash and were out Monday collecting evidence and pursuing the matter, he said.
