Four dead after wreck in Decatur County

Attapulgus, GA (WALB) - Seven passengers in two vehicles were traveling south on Highway 27, when one of the vehicles pulled to the shoulder of the road to change a flat tire just before midnight Wednesday.

At that point, the occupants in the car with the flat tire got into the second car, a Mazda, to ride with them. "Those seven occupants got in one vehicle trying to leave probably to get a part. We're just assuming that," said Griffin.

While the Mazda was about to pull off the shoulder of the road, a Nissan driven by Gregory Mosely came around the curve and lost control of the vehicle, crashing into the Mazda. Gregory Mosely and Phillip Mosely were ejected from the Nissan. They were transported to a Tallahassee hospital, where they both died.

There were seven occupants of the other vehicle, a Mazda 626. "The reconstruction team is reconstructing the accident to see who caused the accident," said Griffin.

The driver, Ashley Moten, and a passenger, Kedric Footman, died in the crash, according to Coroner Peter Bruton.

The other five passengers in the vehicle were Rachel Harrell, Teddy Jones, Anastasia Footman, Jocelyn Alexander and Jessica Alexander. They all remain hospitalized in serious condition.

Georgia State Troopers Walt Landrum, C. L. Hall and Brian Palmer worked the crash. GSP's Special Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT) responded from Valdosta to determine exactly what happened. "We had Decatur County EMS and Decatur County Fire and Rescue respond with out first responders from Attapulgus and Fowlstown and other jurisdictions and also with had Gadsden County EMS out of Quincy, Florida," said Griffin.

After the Mazda was struck, it lunged forward striking the Mustang with the flat tire. The Investigation is still underway.
