SAVANNAH, GA -

A Savannah 911 dispatcher killed in a car crash Tuesday was a native of Lanier County.

Keri Clark, 23, of Lakeland was killed around 1 PM when police say she slammed into the back of a county-owned pickup truck on Veterans Parkway in Chatham County.

Police say the truck's emergency lights, including the directional arrow, were illuminated and operating and a sign indicated personnel was working in the area.

Clark was named Savannah-Chatham dispatcher of the year in May. She was commended for her efforts in saving the life of a suicidal woman last March who was threatening to jump off a bridge.

Clark was a graduate of Lanier County High.
