A curvy stretch of road and a dark night created a recipe for disaster late Wednesday (4/6).

Georgia State Patrol says Gregory Mosley was driving down Highway 27 south with his son, Phillip, on the passenger side, when Gregory sped around a corner, lost control of his car, and smashed into two cars that had pulled over because of a flat tire.

GSP says Gregory died on scene, and Phillip remains in the hospital with broken bones and other injuries.

Delita Strange heard about the crash this morning.

Says Strange, "I think everyone's heartbroken, it just happened so fast. It's sad because at that moment, at that time, it was a long stretch of road, and it's right there when it happened -- it just, it's crazy."

Also killed in the crash were Ashley Moten and Kedric Footman...they were sitting in one of the cars pulled off the highway.

Jocelyn Alexander died at the hospital from her injuries, and now her sister, Jessica Alexander, is on life support.

Three others are also hospitalized.

Many involved in the tragedy had either attended Bainbridge College or were currently enrolled.

The school's registrar, Connie Snyder, says there's nothing they can do but 'grieve'.

Says Snyder, "The faculty know the students personally, and it's very devastating to them to have somebody in their classroom one day and then not the next."

People in Bainbridge say they're putting those involved in their thoughts and prayers.
