Two people were hospitalized with injuries Saturday after a vehicle swerved off the 500 block of Broad Street and struck a man and his wife eating at a sidewalk table in front of the Sports Center.
According to a spokeswoman for the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office, Joseph Howell, 67, and his wife Renee Howell, 58, were at a sidewalk table in front of 594 Broad Street when they were struck by a vehicle driven by Boyce Williams, 57.
