A fifth person has succumbed to her injuries after the deadly crash in Bainbridge on April 6. Four others are still in the hospital in stable condition.

Bainbridge College student Jocelyn Alexander died yesterday (4/7) from her injuries. GSP says her sister, Jessica Alexander, died last night. Also killed were Ashley Meton and Kedrick Footman, who were in the vehicle Gregory smashed into.

Georgia State Patrol says their investigation into the wreck continues.


[LAST UPDATED 4/7 at 6:25 PM]

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.

    This is a so sad for all involved. I can reassure that drinking was not a factor, but driving faster than the speed limit was. It was an accident that was fatal and we are grieving and praying for all families that were involved.

    I've known a lot of people to speed. YES you too!! I really hate what happened to everyone that were killed and injured in this horrific accident. I would like to say that "alcohol" does is not a factor with the driver Rev. Gregory Mosley. A lot of lives have been lost and we don't need to point the finger or make false accusations towards anyone. We have family members and friends who have lost a loved-one. Please be considerate!!

    Seven people sitting in one small car - they must have been sitting on some laps - probably all got whiplash. Who knows maybe the guy that hit them was driving extremely fast and when he rounded the curve and saw lights he switched lanes much to fast and lost control resulting in this awful wreck. Nowhere have I seen that anyone was changing a tire and got hit? Maybe they were going to leave the white mustang and go on to Tally in the one car? Maybe the fast driver thought they were pulling out or maybe they were pulling out and fast driver lost control. WE WILL NEVER KNOW FOR SURE. Prayers for all of their family and friends... I have lost multiple family members in a wreck in Bainbridge and know the feelings all of you are facing right now. The whole town practically shut down for the funeral and the round building next to the old high school was packed with alot of people standing and others outside the doors. Prayers to All.

    I've lived on HWY 27 all of my life (about 30 years). It has always been a dangerous highway, whether it's your first time driving it or if you've been driving it for years. It was dangerous as a 2 lane highway and it's still dangerous as a 4 lane highway. Many accidents have occured & a lot lives have been lost on that stretch in Decatur county between Bainbridge GA and Havana FL. Since I was a child I would always be afraid that someone would lose control of their vehicle and end up in my room. Poor engineering if you ask me, see all of those pine trees along HWY 27 that's money. Negotiations were made & conciliatory curves,dangerous curves, were engineered on HWY 27.

    "Speed Kills"-I agree, this was very preventable. People need to be more careful.

    I hope those good ole boys out of Georgia don't do no ticket fixin. Get the Ga. State Trooper, not the locals to investigate. These Bainbrige College students deserve a lot better who were mindng there own business just changing their tire off of the highway. Hwy 27 has an emergency lane for that. Come on, I've traveled that stretch of highway many times at night with no problem. This dude was either driving too fast or druck when he ran into those kids. Or speeding and drunk. Hope these victims have great doctors and personal injury lawyers to help them. They will need it. Rest in Peace.

    Well if you are driving ridiculously fast this kind of thing happens. Hard to feel sorry for someone who drives dangerously then pays for it.

      This "Lip Cheese" is a fake. I would never say anything so sick. I encourage this faker to get help. Assuming someone else's identity is a sign of a very sick person, bordering on sociopath behavior. I have a friend tracking the fake in case he/she is a danger to society.

        LOL you take this stuff and yourself pretty seriously. Unless your real name is “lip cheese” nobody is stealing your identity. Someone else using the name you log in as isn’t a crime dummy. You need to seek help if a stranger on the internet irritates you so badly lol.
