Deadly Crash on Waldo Road
"She's just a flower, or an angel..." said Thelma J. Mosley.
Her mother, Carrie Mosley, 89, and niece, Aliyah Mosley, 1, were killed Thursday afternoon in a 4-vehicle crash on Waldo Road.
According to FHP, a driver traveling south on NE Waldo road failed to see a group of cars that were slowing, and turning into the Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Association Center. Investigators say the driver, Gabrielle Poirier, 27, of Jacksonville, failed to observe the slowing traffic conditions ahead of her, and struck the rear of the vehicle driven by 62-year-old Gainesville resident Ruth Morris, (which was also occupied by the infant Aliyah and her great grandmother Carrie).
"Other places have the signs that say church, and maybe a blinking caution light... would help people to know that this is a place where theres going to be traffic coming in and out," said Mosley.
Mosley says her mother Carrie, who the community called, "Mama Mosley" served the women's convention for 65 years, and was happy to have her great granddaughter Aliyah with her this week.
"They had a special bond those two," she said.
Mosley says Aliyah had just learned how to say, "bye bye."
"Both mama and Aliyah were just as happy as they could be. God took them, while they were happy," she said.
The case is pending further investigation.
