A six-vehicle crash that occurred at approximately 3:44 p.m. Sunday, March 13, has claimed the life of a Nashville, Tennessee, juvenile.
The 11-year-old was fatally injured when a 1999 Freightliner tractor-trailer driven by Ricky L. Gray, 65, of Milton, Florida, struck a 2016 Nissan Maxima in which the child was a passenger.
The Maxima was driven by Charasma K. Moseley, 41, of Nashville, which was then forced off the roadway. The Freightliner then struck a 2009 Toyota Camry driven by Brian T. Buerkle, 47, of Cincinnati, Ohio.
After striking the 2009 Camry, the Freightliner then struck the rear end of a 2018 Toyota Camry driven by Desmond D. Bradley, 41, of Norcross, Georgia. The 2018 Toyota Camry was then forced into the rear end of a 2011 Toyota 4Runner driven by Paul C. Harris, 66, of Mobile, and a 2013 Ford C-Max driven by Tracy M. Powell, 58, also of Mobile.
The 11-year-old was pronounced deceased at the scene. Charasma K. Moseley and another of her passengers; Lauren Moseley, 21, of Fort Hood, Texas; both were transported to Baptist Medical Center South.
Desmond D. Bradley and his passenger; Andrea D. Thomas, 29, of Prichard; were transported to Baptist Medical Center South, as well.
