According to Sheriff Alvie (Junior) Kight, two Toombs County High School students were killed after their car collided with a log truck late Sunday afternoon on Highway One about a half-mile north of Toombs Central Elementary School.
According to Toombs County Sheriff Junior Kight, 19-year-old Amber Mosley, a senior, and her sister 16-year-old Mary Beth Mosley, a sophomore, at Toombs County High School, were traveling south and the log truck was heading north.
“It looks like the log truck lost control and crossed into their path. He ran off the road there and it looked like it kind of jack-knifed and the trailer kind of came sideways and crossed the road right there in front of them. The vehicle was just demolished. It’s the worst vehicle I’ve seen like that in a long time in a wreck” Sheriff Kight said.
According to Sheriff Kight, the girls had been to see their mother in Register and were returning to their father’s home in Cedar Crossing when the accident happened.
The driver of the log truck was not injured.
The investigation is being conducted by the Toombs County Sheriff’s Office and Georgia State Patrol.
Sheriff Kight would like to thank Toombs County Rural Fire Department, EMS and EMA for assisting in the accident.
