A 2 car crash on Highway 27 south resulted in 4 fatalities on Wednesday night.
The crash occurred at about 11:30 pm. The call to 911 reported that 2 of the injured had been ejected from their car and they were in critical condition. Lifeflight was requested immediately.
When Sheriff's Deputies, Georgia State Patrol and first responders arrived on scene, they immediately requested mutual aid from surrounding counties. Within a few minutes, Decatur County Fire and Rescue and one EMS unit were on scene with additional EMS units enroute along with Gadsden County Florida EMS and a second lifeflight.
Lacey Addison, a 21 year old respiratory therapist, made the call to 911. She told us, in the video, that she discovered the driver of the Nissan 350Z, had stopped breathing and began CPR. She was able to get his heart beating again and continued her attempt to save his life until EMS arrived on scene and took over. The driver, Gregory Mosley, was transported to Tallahassee by Gadsden County. His son, Phillip Mosley, also ejected from the vehicle, was lifeflighted to Tallahassee. Gregory Mosley did not survive the crash. Phillip Mosley suffered broken ribs and is stable in Tallahassee.
There was 7 occupants of the other vehicle, a Mazda 626 (see below). The driver, Ashley Moten, and passengers Kedric Footman, died in the crash and Coroner Peter Bruton pronounced the 2 at the scene. Jocelyn Alexander was transported to Tallahassee where she died. Jessica Alexander is in critical condition in Tallahassee. The 3 other passengers in the vehicle were Rachel Harrell, Teddy Jones and Anastasia Footman.
Georgia State Troopers Walt Landrum, CL Hall and Brian Palmer worked the crash. GSP's Special Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT) responded from Valdosta to determine exactly what happened. Trooper Landrum stated that the group of 7 were traveling in 2 cars on their way to Tallahassee. One of the cars, a white mustang, had a flat tire and pulled onto the shoulder. Ashley Moten pulled over onto the shoulder behind them and they all loaded up in the Mazda 626.
The Nissan 350Z, driven by Gregory Mosley, came around a curve, evidently at a high rate of speed, and lost control of his vehicle. The 350Z went into a spin and struck the Mazda setting on the shoulder. The 350Z was traveling backwards when they hit the Mazda.
The 350Z (see below) continued down the highway, still in a spin, and came to rest in the median. The occupants, Gregory and Phillip Mosley, were ejected from their car and transported to Tallahassee Memorial.
After the Mazda was struck, it lunged forward striking the Mustang with the flat tire.
